Start just left of Thursday Afternoon Hooky. Go up 3 bolts of dirty, black rock. Then head up the ramp until you can step over onto the nice, clean, orange panel of rock. The first three bolts of the face is the crux. This might be easier if you are tall. It is somewhere around .11d or .12a. Climb up to the O in the face, a really cool feature in the rock where you get to use the whole circle. Then cruise the rest of the line around .11a/b.


This is left of Thursday Afternoon Hooky.


14? bolts. It is 110 feet. A 70m rope is required. This has fixed anchors.

Great route with lots of variety.... The hanger for the 6th bolt was on the ground when we did it. We placed it back on, but it is only hand tightened. If you have a wrench, it might be a good idea to give it a crank.
