This route is smackdab in the middle of the wall. It goes up a sorta crack, which wouldn't take good gear at all. The fist few bolts go through some shist which is super steep. After you gain the crack the rock become granite and stays steep, overhanging even. This is steep fun route with some good fist jams. It is well protected and a bit hard. I put a extra bolt up top just so you dont go whipping into the tree.
Its not over till its over.
good luck


9 bolts
2 bolt anchor

Overhanging granite that actually climbs well is rare and this route is a hidden gem!
