The quartzite rock is uniquely sculptured and polished. The few bolts encountered seem at times oddly placed, nevertheless, this is a fun climb with great movement.

Pitch #1: Climb up past the first bolt to a tricky roof where protection is either creative or on to a bolt past the spicy moves. Continue up the smooth spur to a two-bolt belay. 5.9+, 25m.

Rappel the route.


The route ascends the prominent prow facing the creek and BCC road and the rock is cleaner than its neighbor to the left.


QDs for 4 bolts. Some Aliens or C-3s can be comforting. Bolts are in good shape and the washer stacked chained anchor seems bomber.
