After you clip the first bolt, transfer to the face. Head up the crimpy face with a nut at the ready (if there's one fixed, DONT TAKE IT) or be prepared for quite a fall. This climb has great moves on a pretty face and some big but safe fall potential (assuming you don't have the stopper). Definitely one of the more asthetic climbs at Harpers!

Direct Start Project: With the first bolt clipped, begin on the ledge and fire straight up through a hard boulder problem.


Climb A ramp (second from the right) to the base of the highest orange face (just below a loose gully). Using a ledge on the right corner of the face, traverse onto the face to start.


4 bolts to a sling anchor on the tomentosa tree. It's also possible to place a great #5BD stopper between the 3rd and 4th bolt(for a shorter fall).
