The crux of this route is getting off the ground, it is amazingly greasy and polished. Once you are off the ground some easier climbing leads up to a somewhat reachy section on some sloping holds.

This may have been a good route at one point but it is sadly polished and feels like you are pulling on a bar of soap through much of it.


On the main section of wall there is a big section of orange rock to the right of a small depression high on the wall. This route is just tot eh right of that orange rock and has the name written at the base.


Bolts and a bolted anchor.

Totally agree with the description. I bet this was a great 5.10 when it was bolted 30 years ago (1985)! It is now probably the most polished route in the world every hold squeaks its so slippery. Given 6A (5.10A) in the new (black) guide! Probably closer to 11A in its current condition!
