Grotto and Lookout closed MORE INFO >>>


Climb past rounded jugs to a sequential roof, and finally through a powerful headwall section. There is an optional sit start that ups the ante.


Left side of the cave, just after exiting the tunnel.


4 bolts & 2 open shuts.

Just got on this route a crucial hold at second clip just broke off in my hand. We put it on a rock by the start in case anyone wants to bring some epoxy with them next time they head over that way.

Anyone know what this thing goes now that the hold broke? It really made the sequence screwed up having to cross left hand to the next big hold rather being able to go right.

Brian, it feels like 12d/13a still. I did it last year in late September and repeated it again in April of this year.
