This is the first bolted route you come to as you approach the cliff. You can stick clip the first or the second bolt. First bolt is in a less than optimal spot due to hollow rock on the right side, so if you can reach the 2nd bolt, clip that one.
Boulder a quick crux (V2ish) off the ground to a ledge, then move up and left on technical and thin moves (another V2ish crux) through the next bolt. Then head up to good holds and a quite dynamic crux getting to a weird "bulb" jug. Then immediately pull the hardest, and last crux (look for a nifty kneebar) to a good hold and easier moves to the top.
The grade of this route is still very much up in the air. So give suggestions once you climb it!


First bolted route you get to when you reach the cliff.


6 draws plus two for anchor. Rap Rings on anchor

Lower boulder is not the most fun, but the route improves quite a bit after that. Some memorable sequences in fact.
