Follow the dihedral to a traverse left on pockets. Some face moves then lead you to the right angling roof crack. Follow it up and right to the anchor, never really pulling the roof, though. Good rock.


In the middle of the Washboard Area. The line follows the dihedral, then the right angling roof crack. Start on ledge above the belay ledge.


Bolts. 2 bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

Why does this route only get one star? I thought it had really good sustained movement with a good crux. Just wondering.

It's not sustained at all. It's pretty much a 5.9 to a 10' crux section at the end. It's good moves, but not a super classic for the area, in my opinion.
