Pretty tricky climb with some slick sloped holds. There is a great resting spot after the 3rd bolt. The top is where the crux is, where the holds get thinner and more spaced out. This is a very stout 10c.


This is the first rout you will come to while following the trail to the hobbit caves. It is very new so the bolts and chains stand out quite well.

This wall looks unique in that it looks like it could belong right on the oceans edge. It has a smooth wind blown surface. This climb is super sweet with bad feet in places, jugs, side pulls and slopiness. It has many large features.

I heard that Jared and Chad bolted this thing on lead. Is that true?! Let me know!
