Finishing up the 6a pillar above Strangle Hold.

Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a quality route! Short and very powerful at the grade. Head up into the cave recess in the center of the Nest. On the left side of the cave, you get a tie off, and bolts that traverse out left over space, then up. The traverse has big huecos that have distinct sweet spots. WHen you start moving up, you're doing heavy duty tufa pinching. Athletic!

Location 

Center of the Nest. Starts in the cave, left side, and traverses left on big huecos, then up.

Protection 

bolts and threads.
