Description 

Start from a gold-colored bolt atop a pedestal on the left side of the wall.

P1: 11b. Bouldery start up clean rock (5.11b) then turns to fourth class for the second half of the pitch.

P2: 11b. Start in a finger crack, then pull left around a corner to friable face climbing past two bolts (5.11b). This is the lowest quality pitch on the route.

P3: 5.9. Finger crack to face moves past a bolt (the last on the route) and back into splitter hands to the base of the obvious black corner on the left side of the headwall.

P4: 10b. Corner crack with small to large gear.

P5: 10c. Leave the right corner of the left overhang through a hand crack that then angles left through an undercling to the top. Superb.

Protection 

Gear to 3.5"
