This route has demanding moves on a variety of small holds right from the start. Slopers, crimps and pockets and some serious tension are required to reach the 3rd clip. More tough moves allow a rest at the 4th and/or 5th clip. One teaser crux guards the anchor. Don't blow it up there! Trying to stem at the beginning is not part of this climb, so sack up and do it!


Left of the Coolsville wide crack is this obvious steep yet short arete.


6 bolts and a sporty clip and lower anchor.

Really enjoyed this one - very bouldery! Different style than most TS routes. Real business is first 3 bolts with an intense boulder problem (V6/7 IMO) and surprisingly good clipping stances.

Sadly, a key left hand broke off at the 3rd bolt. I imagine the climb still goes, but it may be a bit harder. Haven't tried.
