Shares an anchor with The Blind Prince. This line is a bit steeper and feels a bit more strenous than its neighbor. The crux is pulling over a small bulge.

This is a good route for someone starting to break into the 5.10s. Short but secure.


3 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.


can start at the same spot as The Blind Prince next to a small cave, but heads right to the first bolt.

It looks like the first bolt for this route is no longer there. It currently has 2 bolts and the anchors. You could use the high second bolt, but it is up there... You could also use the first bolt for the route to the right with a long draw/alpine.

We just led the one to the left and then toproped this one since they share anchors.
