An exercise in good, but frequently off-angled holds, this route lingers move-to-move somewhere between a jug haul and sloping sidepulls. Luckily, no hard moves are run back to back, so one can figure out the move at hand, then take a rest, repeated to the end. Climb up on good holds to the first bolt then weave left and right (moslty left) past 3 more bolts to a ledge and chain anchors above the route.

Climb some easy terrain (5.2?) up to a few good holds to clip the first bolt, then continue up on sagacious territory passing no particular crux but stopping to figure out any given move or find the best hold as needed.

This is a reasonably good route with a little lichen still remaining.


This route is the right-most (upper) of the two routes on the Eastern side of The Sundrop, and the right-most bolted line on the crag overall.


4 draws + 2 for the anchors up top.
