Somebody wanted to do good. However, we could not find a reasonable 8 move but did find too many misplaced bolts and the anchor too low. After gaining the large tree ledge clip the bolt and make the only 7 move on rounded smears.


Far left on the Parking Lot West Wall and just left of Giggles


Five bolts (only two needed) the rest is BD .75 and below. Bring runners to mitigate the drag over large ledges. The rap has a tendency to toss you off left.

The 2016 Bingham shows this route as 5.9, two stars. It is more like 5.7-ish, and not recommended, not worth the trouble. As noted above, it has poorly located bolts (odd locations), and ends in kind of a strange place - below what would seem to be the more logical conclusion.
