A few hard face moves up to a bolt (5.10a direct, or easier to the right) yield to easier climbing past widely-spaced bolts. The route boasts excellent rock quality and a striking line. There are two additional 5.9 cruxes which are both well protected.

Bolts appeared on this face within the last 2 years or so. Nothing is known about the first ascentionists, the route name, or its original difficulty rating. If you have any information, please post it below.


50 feet left (and about 30 feet down) from the start of the Tree Route.


5 shiny, new lead bolts. Bolted anchor (neither shiny nor new...not great, actually) with rappel rings. The top anchor can be backed up with a 1.5 inch piece.

This is an AWESOME first pitch alternate to Anti-Jello. From the bolted anchor, head straight up into the classic tips crack.

The route is also a useful diversion while waiting in line for the Tree Route.

...Also makes a good first pitch to Tree Route.

Tacky anchor next to a perfect 2"-3" crack, contrived crux that is easily moved past on the right, crispy small edges-not a classic for sure and pales when compared to its 4/5 star neighbors. Other than convenience to get a few more feet of climbing in and a quick rap, I wouldn't reccommend this one.

A better start to Anti-Jello, and fun, but pretty contrived. Apart from a 5.9 move at the very start (which can be made easier by stepping off a large flake to the right), I'd say the climbing is pretty standard 5.8. It can be rapped or TR'ed with a 60 m.

Fun start that makes Anti-Jello a hair more sustained.
