Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Head up along the right side of a large flake through three bolts, then trend left. Travel bit of easier ground for a moment, then a slightly steeper bit awaits.

Surmount this by finding small feet, and good, albeit slightly-less-than fully positive hands, and then head left to the anchors.

A few of the holds near the second bolt may be wet early in the season.

Location 

Near the left (uphill) side of the wall is a striking blue streak with a large pocket about ten feet up. This line is the right bolted route with its starting bolts on the right side of a large flake.

Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors. Last three bolts and anchor is shared with Serpentine (immediately left), and anchor is shared with Voltaire (left of Serpentine).
