Description 

Starts off with 7 bolts (5.10 b/c) followed by 35 feet of easy trad. When going over the roof (first crux) you can go up on good handholds by the crack to the right of the third bolt and up over the roof with a nice mantel (5.10c). Easier if you go to the left of the third bolt, not as exciting though (5.10b).

The second crux is getting to the fifth bolt. I think the two crux sections are really good, mixed with some trad, so I would give this climb 2 1/2 stars.

When you pull the rope down, it is best to pull the rope about 15 feet to the right of where you started so the rope does not land in the tree.

Location 

This is the climb farthest to the right in Jungle Gym Area.

Protection 

7 bolts with 35 feet of trad to anchors.
