Start at ground level, clipping the bolts. Goes through some loose/poor quality rock through a few bolts to a lip. Clip the bolt above the lip, pull a reachy move over the lip and move up through thinner moves on good rock to the anchors.


Early part of Impact Zone, at trail level past Blood, Sweat and Chalk. Starts to the right of the huge block (the huge block is the start of No Weld).


5 bolts and bolted anchors.

Clipping the anchors was a bit tricky. Little feet. The Crux for me.
