Awesome sandstone pockets at the start!

Description 

Not a great warm up, but a fun route anyway.

A hard start on small pockets, stick clip recommended. Then better pockets up to the breack at about mid hieght. Jugs up the steeper headwall above.

Location 

The second bolted route you come to when you get to the cliff and head right, just before the crack climb of Fallen Angel.

Protection 

Seven bolts to a bolted anchor.
