This mini-route climbs up a left-facing flake just to the right of The Great Escape. There's not much routefinding or beta indecision here: just climb the flake to a two bolt anchor. The extension above the anchors is a cool-looking 13d called Diesel.


3 bolts

A bolted short 5.9 crack, that looks to take good gear, I like it.

Well, the flake is only about 20 feet, and bolting is the ethic here. Not a big deal. That having been said, I don't think that this climb is worthwhile as a lead. It can be toproped from the Great Escape anchors.

Ethic or not, why bolt a route with a crack protectable with gear?? Agreed, if the route is that short just TR it.
