Featured and fun.


This is a fun face climb on the upper crag at Hidden Jewels. The route is well-botled and not particularly steep, making it a relatively laid-back experience. The face is a bit thin in places, but is broken by dike-like striations for the hands and feet.

If you're climbing with a 50m rope, be sure to knot the end!


7 bolts. recommends carrying additional gear, but this is unecessary unless you want the exercise.

I didn't really see anywhere to place pro anyway, except for a couple of spots close to the bolts...3 runout sections about 15 ft each..

There's one perfect crack for a small cam between maybe the 4th and 5th bolts, but it's easy to just run it out.

Take some small nuts if you don't like runouts.

Two of the runouts can be protected with small nuts or cams. Only one goes without protection, and it is high up with no danger of ground fall or ledges. Fun route.
