The route starts on the far rightside of the cliff. Climb up past two bolts to a small overhang. Clip the third bolt and swing right to a large flake. Surmount the flake (cool moves) and veer right and up following bolts to the anchor. great climb for the grade. Should become popular.


Six bolts with get you to a two-bolt anchor.

A fun route with moves which appear harder than 5.9 before committing to them, but are actually 5.9. A nice addition to the area.

I thought this was a great climb with interesting moves -- well worth doing at Pine Cone Dome. Bolts and anchors all look great.

Someone took a shit at the base of this route, and all I can say is 'really'? Was this person making a statement about the climb, or just plain ignorant?
Watch where you step, be careful pulling on the flakes, and pump through the start, smooth sailing after that.
