On the FFA


This route gets my vote as one of the best 5.11's in the state. On the short side, but very sweet. It has great rock quality and very cool angular, geometric holds and nice technical flowing moves. If you like pinches and weird technical climbing on good rock this is the route for you! Stick clip the first bolt and utilize a small pocket to gain a jug rail. Then climb pinches and edges into a technical crux in a shallow corner. Take it home to the anchor with victory jugs.


Left side of the cliff.


4 Glue ins to an anchor.
