This route is located on the upper tier of the southeast slabs of Greyrock. This route is the first route with more than two bolts to the right of Slab Happy (5.7).

I gave this route a "s" rating, since the crux moves start before you clip the first bolt and because there is a 25-30ft runout on 5.6 rock after the last bolt. I really enjoyed this route after I was able to clip the first bolt, which is a little committing. The easy runout is not scary, and should be no problem for someone who made it through the crux.


3 bolts, optional small gear.

I forgot to mention the anchor consists of a single bolt w/ chain and a slingable flake. Consider carrying some extra webbing for the flake.

If this is the route I'm thinking of, it has been completely bolted; it's not run-out any more. A good, well protected route. There are 2 anchor chains now.
