This is probably the [2nd] longest route on the cliff. Climb past 11 bolts (formerly 6) to a 2 bolt anchor.


To the right of the fence there are several routes, this is the rightmost route of this cluster.


This originally had 6 bolts. As of July 2014, there are now 11 bolts.

Great beginner lead. It currently has 6 bolts, but we drilled for 5 more which will probably be added within the next month or so. Also it now has clips at the anchor.
It now has 11 bolts including a new first and last bolt. The new last bolt may have changed the nature of the climb as it now takes a more direct route to the anchors. I don't think it has changed the difficulty of the climb, but it needs more opinions on such. If it has changed the difficulty, it would be maybe half a grade harder, so .7+.

Worth it for the height! It has been 4-5 year since I climbed this route, but it is worth having a helmet as the belayer considering I recall this route having the most choss in the area.
