BETA PHOTO: The route.


This route takes the shaded face to the right of This Bolt's For You (5.11d). A brief arete sort of block presents the only difficulty, and it comes between bolts one and two. Big jugs, good stone, fun moves. What more do you want, besides making the line 600 feet long instead of 45 feet long???


QDs only. All you need is seven draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

A fun pitch with the crux down low, and steep easy climbing at the top.

Anchor bolts are far apart and need something more than just 2 draws.

There are also some big loose-ish blocks near the top which will come down after enough winters. One is huge, but seems to be staying in place for now or I would have trundled it. Make sure your belayer is paying attention and wearing a helmet.

Clean, a bit polished, but fantastic climbing.

Loose blocks remain as of 1/11/14, as does the loose bolt on the widely spaced anchor.
