An easy enough looking .10a (bull) that will school you on judging a book by its cover! Jams are varied and difficult on this pumpy, sustained, frustrating, and exhilarating .11a route!


This route is just south of "Jared Diamond's Tower" - can't miss the tower - it's 'collapsed' and the trail leads under it!


Bring everything you have up to to a #5. Chains at the top with a quick link.

By everything you have up to a 5 Roy means a single set from .75 up and a whole family of 3s if you have them. Cruxy start to killer hands with face holds here and there. A bit grunty in spots.
