Scramble up to the obvious small cave in upper part of center Ruins area, right of Duh Bulge.


Exit cave on right side, then follow bolts up fun face to chains.


Plenty of bolts.

My first 10+ lead! Pumpy enough to keep one focused but not so pumpy to shut one down; I felt there were really great rests after every set of hard moves. Clipping that first bolt while hanging is pretty fun.

Lots of good rests on this one so 10c imo. Definitely one of the best routes on the wall.
