Sweet view from the anchor.

Climb an obvious corner past two bolts to an easy slab. As the slab steepens, the difficulty increases. Stay left of the bolts for the original difficult line, then climb up to a roof that is easily surmounted to the right, then finish the route back to the left. An easier variation stays right of the bolts, but is still a little dirty. The roof can be surmounted to the left of the bolts, however it's very difficult.


10 bolts to mussey anchors.

Needs a mega-scrub, and all the bolts are way left of the path of least resistance. Would probably be a really nice moderate with a solid cleaning.

Will the red tape show me where the path of least resistance is? Oh wait, it's to the right of the bolt line.

Great come back Lurker! We did the route again today and the moss was less noticeable, as it looks like most people have been climbing the route to the right. I lead it to the left of the bolts, as on the FA, then TR'd the right variation. So it does go both ways, left of bolts more technical, right not too hard, but fun, and cleaning up. I updated the description. Thanks for your input.

Ha! At least we both have a sense of humor. Not trying to bust your balls too hard, as someone that has put up a good number of routes elsewhere, I appreciate the work you guys are doing at the Emeralds.
