Clipping the scary high second bolt.


I don't like to call this route a sport route. It's a bolted route for sure, but there are only 4 bolts in 60 feet and no separate anchors for this one.

To some it will seem runout and to others the bolts will seem undersized.

Regardless, this is a classic route and deserves your attention.

Edge up a black streak to the ledge. Traverse left until you can move up on to the ledge and belay from anchors above Buckeye Testpiece.


Immediately right of Buckeye Testpiece.


Four bolts, you can put in a directional under the boulder on the ledge. Bring a large cam for that.

Belay or set up a top rope from Buckeye Testpiece anchors.

Really fun route. Don't be intimidated by the well-spaced bolts, as the clips are easy and the falls would always be clean. Very fun face climbing on beautiful rock.
