Crux is at the start; easier to traverse in from the right.


100 feet east of the fence is a south-facing formation with one bolt. There is also a left diagonalling seam/crack on the right side of the formation - this is the route.


one bolt, and pro to .75
build anchor with small gear

The bolt was added by unknown climbers long after the FA (around 2000/2001) .

Gotta wonder why the bolt is there. The crux moves are at the bottom, and from the spot where I clipped the bolt, I could get gear in the crack, after which the climbing above gets much easier.

You can climb up from behind and make a Top rope gear anchor with a BD #3 #2 #1
