A fun line on fairly good rock. Starts up with small edges on solid quartzite that is a little less than vertical and continues through overhanging steepness with small to medium handholds and the occasional jug. Pumpy through the overhanging bit, then eases up near the top.


Right of the “cave”; second bolted line from the right, ignoring Oscar the Grouch which is quite a bit farther right.


9 bolts, chain anchors.

This is a good continuous line that is longer than its neighbors. The lower part overhangs with a fun right hand side pull move. The upper part is just cool because the rock is peculiar but solid.

Fun route, pumpy too! Box Elder bugs all over the place, especially interesting were some of their 'nests' where tons of them were squished into some tiny cracks. Be on the look out for Yellow Jackets as well, I saw around a dozen languishing in the shady cracks/fissures of the rock. They were fairly lethargic due to the temps, so they didn't get riled up, but it would be easy to get stung while pawing around for handholds.
