Several crimps and slopers, long reach helps.


Left of Solomon route, left of three routes next to each other on obvious south-facing wall.


Several bolts to two bolt anchor, can walk around to the top to setup top rope.

This route is 50 feet, and has 5 bolts up two a two bolt anchor.

1st bolt is about 14' above the ground, but the routes just gets steeper, crimpier, and more fun as you move up. Think... small spaced jugs as you move through the crux (4-5th bolts).

Amazing route for sure. After a heady start to the first bolt (stick clip is really nice to have) the moves get really nice and flow beautifully.

***The "Anchor" on this one is a throw-over hook for the right bolt and a piece of bent metal with a stuck carabiner that is 3/4 cut through for the left...gulp! Make sure and check the conditions of this anchor before going ground up unless you wanna just top it out and walk off. I could not get that degraded biner out to replace it
