A short, quite burly route on slippery, polished quartzite that trends right when the holds and rock say “go left”.

Start using some stemming and liebacking to get to the first bolt, and then make careful use of what feet there are while using reasonably good handholds to the second bolt. After the second bolt bear right on poorer feet while looking in vain for truly positive handholds.

After the third bolt lies the crux: getting up and over the top with slopey handholds and poor feet.


The left-most of two bolted routes on the Meat Wall.


3 bolts, chain anchors.
