This route climbs the triangular face directly behind the parking area to a large ledge then continues up the slab above. Bring your edging shoes! It would get three stars if it wasn't for the ledge in the middle.

P1. 5.11c. Climb the triangular face past the snake to its apex and the large ledge, 5.10a. It is best to belay here, as the crux is getting to the second bolt above the ledge. Figure out the techy boulder problem, then climb nice edges to another thin section getting to the last bolt. Lower from the chains.


This is directly above the parking area.


Nine bolts.
