Demonstrating poor technique on the steep, lower p...


The first half of the pitch (7 bolts) ends at a small ledge (with anchors) and goes at 5.11b, making it one of the easiest climbs at the crag. Ascending the entire climb goes at 5.12d (13 bolts). The lower part is steep but has large hold while the top follows a crimpy line.


The left side of the fire wall, two routes right of the arete on the far left side.


Well bolted.

While the .11b start is a fun, short 2.5 star warmup with some nice movement, the top is a high-quality sport climb with great rock throughout. From the first anchor, a nice crux sequence through some cool pockets and edges in limestone-like rock culminates in another bouldery crux up higher, finishing on easier but still pumpy ground. It's probably .12c at most and well worth it.
