Start right of large boulder, follow a black streak, climb up a featured face to a bulge, then make some slab moves to steep upper headwall crux. The guide says do a big toss to a big jug, (more like a dead point to a pocket) but the lower part of the hold is sloper. There is a pocket above it.


11 bolts.

FWIW, you don't have to dyno. This is not a boy climb. Footwork really makes it not strenuous. Sunglasses are not recommended.

Found the pockets, but not the "big jugs". Insert TWSS comment here. This route re-sparked my enthusiasm for climbing! Friend that led, a seasoned climber, ran out of steam at the crux and broke a hold off around the second bolt.

(I agree with Leo, footwork is key. Enjoy the features, no need to dyno through them.)

Another vote for no dyno needed, not even a deadpoint. Work on getting your feet high while you have your hands on a jug. I'm 5'7" with 0+ ape index, and I was able to reach the pocket statically with room to spare.
