This is an old top-rope route that was first climbed in the mid-80s. There is no natural pro so it is unknown if anyone ever soloed the route. I would say there is a good chance that Steve Pope or one of his crew did indeed solo this at some point. It is short and a little awkward. This can be used as a first pitch for Pumper, which should be bolted soon. Climb the obvious features on the right side of the bolts.


Far right end of the top-rope wall, on the other side of the pine trees.


3 bolts and rings at the top
