Pull off the ground on small flakes and tip toe up the sharp holds following the bolts up the black streak. Rest in the offwidth and then head back out on the face for more technical moves. When the angle slabs out continue heading up to anchors high on the top of the block.


Head left out of the big roof area and follow the base of the formation around until you see the bolt line heading up the black streak.


Bolt protected. The bolts were replaced in 2016.
