Easily identified as the left leaning bolted flake system on the right side of the lower wall. Fun moves, though short. The clips may be hard for shorter folks. The extension past the anchor is (reportedly) 13a.


4 bolts to bolted anchor. Unfortunately the bolts are chain links instead of hangers - but they seemed solid.

Found this route to be very fun. If it was a little longer and the bolts were standard hangers, I'd give it 4 stars.

The guidebook has it listed as a 10.c and in some areas it would be. But compared to the handful of other 10's I did in the canyon, the hands are too positive and the feet too good for a c letter grade.
