Start off a boulder at the base of the route. Climb edges and fossils past bolts to two bolt anchor w/chains.


Just right of Too Big For Your Bridges.

One of the nicer mellow 5.10s at the BA Walls. This is the first bolted line to the right of the wide line that divides the Lower Flailing Wall in half. While getting off the ground may feel cruxy, the main difficulty is encountered on the top half of the climb. In this section, stemming over to Too Big For Your Bridges lowers the difficulty to 5.8 while not stemming maintains a 5.10- grade.
