Start hands in pocket below 1st bolt. Move left and over the bulge to second bolt. Bulge is the crux. A few more moves gain the third bolt. Third bolt to the anchors is slaby. Great warm up!


South face, 50 feet to the right of Maxwell"s Hammer.


3 bolts

There is one move over the bulge that feels harder to me than the 5.9 rating suggests, maybe 5.10. But then I also have wimpy fingers. A good cold weather climb since it gets quite a bit of sun.
