Step onto the wall for a couple of easy moves to the first bolt. Hit the pocket in the back of the first roof, and then pull a tough boulder problem past two bolts and two roofs. Knowing a proper sequence is definitely advantageous, but that's for you to figure out. Once you've pulled the roof, finish on 10/15 feet of easy but dirty slab to anchors.

All in all, this route comes down to 5/6 stopper moves. Similar to most routes in the Grotto, this route is short and sweet - certainly worthwhile.


At the entrance to the cave system. Facing ascension, walk left and keep an eye out to your right for a short route with a few bolts.


3 bolts + anchors
