This climb is mostly a jug haul with a crux of completely opposite character. A few of the jugs are greasy, but it does not affect the nature of the climb. Climb up lower angle terrain to a small bulge. Getting on top of this is the technical (and mental) crux. Its a very fun and cool move/position and definitely the highlight. The falls are very safe, but you'll see. After this, finish on juggish holds to the anchors. Very good warmup climb for the area.


This route is about 3-4 climbs over from the left. It obvious with lower angle terrain featuring massive chalked jugs, as it is the easiest route at the crag.


8 bolts to chains and biners. Some of the hangers are horizontal, so pay attention to how your draw will lay on it after you move above it.

A good warm up for the area but not that great of a route otherwise.
