jakob up near the hard to see bolt out right...


A long interesting route that is a pretty good intro to the crag. The crux takes place in the corner in the first half of the route. The top half is a series of mantel moves that are a bit more moderate.

Climb up blocky rock to a ledge. Clip a bolt and stem up the corner. I found the crux to be moving to the right on to the face after stemming the corner. The moves stay challenging up the face until you have to move right again to find the next bolt (hard to see from below). After you clip this bolt none of the moves are harder than 5.9 all the way to the anchors.


When you get to the cliff via the fixed rope you will be standing at the base of a wall with two bolted routes on it. Move around the corner to the right an look for the bolts on the right wall of a left facing corner, thats the route.


9 bolts to ring anchors

The anchor is two glue-ins. You need to rap down. Easier to clean seconding.

Not a problem cleaning this one after leading. Pretty standard stuff.
