A fun route with a low bouldery crux that probably clocks in at about 12a.

Move up the steep start on small holds and perhaps a big move. Better holds lead to another bolt at a block. Move onto the block and clip another bolt below a thin face. Move up, using the arete a bit, to good holds and the last bolt. Continue up a few feet to the anchor (cold shuts).


This is the only route on the north side of the formation.


All bolted (4) and an anchor.

Rebolted this one today. The old bolts looked horrendous but actually weren't as bad as they appeared. Much better now though.
