Climb the route to the right of Farewell to Arms liebacking the left side of the cave clipping the bolts on the face to the left. Top-out and walk off.


Three bolts on the face to a two bolt anchor over the lip.

There were shiny new anchors on this on 5/17/14. Only one hard move which is not as hard as the hardest move on Farewell to Arms.

There is an awesome place for a heel hook to get out of the cave. Very fun route, and substantially easier than Farewell to Arms. I am not sure why Bay Area Rock has this at an .11a. It definitely felt .10aish to me.

Definitely a nice route once you are able to push through the cave. It took me a few tries before I was able to make it out of the cave, and a few more to top out.
