Just past the low crux


Make crux moves off the ground past the first bolt, then climb fun moves up to a second slabby crux around the second bolt.

Top out and belay from a tree, this route would be nice with a bolted anchor to eliminate the rope drag.


Just left of Moss Face and right of Dirty Bird. Easily located by the bolt at about the 8 foot mark.


Standard rack and 2 bolts.

If you start out a little left it makes the first moves a bit easier. And I think this was climbed befor Brad put in the bolts.

WARNING someone added two anchor hangers at the top just below the final bulge at the top. THEY ARE BOTH LOOSE, the nuts are only hand tight and the studs can be wiggled in the holes. We didn't have any tools to try to tighten, and honestly I have never placed a bolt anyways so I don't really know how to inspect them to see if they are even installed correctly or the holes/studs are the right match or deep enough. Each stud is stamped with the letter "D" if that helps.
