A picture of the crack of the route, eventually it...


Fun little crack, if a bit loose in places. The crux is probably turning the roof near the top. But there are good holds everywhere, so it's not too bad. After turning the roof, clip the last bolt on Magic Helmet (the bolted 5.10 to the right) and finish on Magic Helmet's anchors.


The crack in the corner to the left of Magic Helmet.


A few small to medium sized pieces. One bolt. Uses the chains on Magic Helmet.

I used purple, green, and red BD Camalots to protect the route to the bolt. Maybe a yellow one, too. This climb is nothing spectacular but it's pretty fun. You don't really need to jam--there are enough face holds.

This route is great to practice early Trad climbing skills. The gear is easy enough to place and the moves are easy enough as well. The POSITIVE thing to this route is that it is a short distance so the mental commitment to the route is low, the bolt is only about 20ish feet of the ground and has the most easy clipping position in the world, also there is a fun little roof you kinda of just poke your head through, get your ground hog on and climb this.
