BETA PHOTO: The spray painted A and arrow make this climb easy...


Starts on a narrow face between a left-facing inside corner and an arete. Climb the face using the arete (full value) or the insider corner (easier), then pull the overlap on the right (full value) or skirt past it on the arete (easier, more run out) to rap rings at the top.


1 route left of Machismo at a small face between a left facing corner and arete. There is an A with an arrow over it painted on the rock just left of this route.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

BETA SPOILERS: Reachy crux to find a hidden bore hole jug above the first mini-roof. Thin moves above the second mini-roof to clip the last draw before moving up to the anchors. Airy feel, one of the more exposed routes at Safe Harbor.

Maybe I'm a horrible climber, but I whole heartily disagree with a 5.10b rating especially when you start left and move right as opposed to using the corner right and moving left to the arete at the top. Those moves are pretty techy and not 10b.

My favorite way to climb this one is the "full value way" where you climb the lower face without the corner then huck up to the drill hole directly from the far right of the overlap as opposed to traversing in from the left.

The bottom face will feel harder if its hot since the feet are real smeary. Also in winter the good handholds are often wet. If its dry and cool its very enjoyable.
