This route is a powerful straight on layback on a wide crack. Four bolts for protection, but not a sport route.


4 bolts (all 3/8")

Consistent moves, getting established is the hardest part.

This climb can also be done as a pure offwidth, with a 5.10C rating. The crux is in the first ten feet. Because of loose flakes inside the crack, the first two bolts are still needed for protection, but #3 - #4 Camalots give good pro up higher.
