    This is the line to the right of Unknown, and it goes to the same anchors.


    This is on the left (north) end of Stepping Stones crag, just right of Unknown. There are three routes on the far left end of the crag that all end at a two bolt rap anchor.


    5 (4?) bolts, 2 anchor bolts.

    Short, but interesting. There are several steep slopey moves.

    You'll want to check the right bolt at the anchor on this one. The hanger was spinning, and the nut was almost completely off today. I tightened it the best I could with my fingers.

    The route has 4 bolts. Definitely committing getting to the 3rd bolt. Best not to fall. There is a good, vertical edge system on the right. Another bolt between the 2nd & 3rd bolt would be nice, but it's no big deal if you are climbing 5.11+ or harder. I have never thought the crux past 3rd bolt was only 5.10-. Very solid 5.10 crux. The rest of the climb is 5.9 & easier.
