The crux is at the top. It has good moves and is a great place to introduce noobs to the sport. If you are a 5.7 leader, you will step up your game for this one.


Start 20 feet left of Black Beauty.


5 bolts to over the top glue ins.

Per scout Richardson: 5 bolts.

This route would go 3 stars IMO if the PG was gone and another bolt was added to do so.

I agree with the additional bolt comment.

This is another route that is notably harder for short people. It gets pretty runout between bolts 3 and 4, as the route starts to get pretty vertical, and so that section was almost more daunting than between bolts 4 and 5 when the route goes slightly past vertical.
