Head up just behind the large blocks to the right of the crag, following a black streak up the cobbles. Crux right around the third bolt. Crux can be bypassed above the third bolt by moving to the right.
CAUTION: Watch the pillar behind you! Potential for leader to hit it.
Right side of crag, behind the large boulder, going up the black streak.
8 bolts to anchors.

Excellent climb. Steep climbing on positive holds. Falling low can be a danger. Popular. Strong gym climbers like this one.

I second the warning about falls low on the route. A fun climb.

Bold Text 5 stitches. Flipped upside down by rope behind my leg. Nearest Hospital Espanola. Mind the Boulder, not the ground.

Ouch, Levi. Glad you're OK. While I've heard from many concerned people about the boulder behind the climber I've never actually heard of anyone hitting it in a clean fall. The rope behind the leg while leading will most likely be bad no matter what--if the leader's head doesn't hit the boulder first, it'll hit the wall instead.
Mind the rope, then the boulder, then the ground. :-)

On 7/26/11 I removed the super sketchy sawn through snap links from the anchor. The chains are still in good condition. Bring quickdraws to toprope.

if you blow the third clip you will get really smashed. I watch my boss get a nasty concusion here. also wear a helmet.

Fo real, I don't know why this doesn't have some sort of pg 13, R or even X rated since blowing the 3rd clip is a ground fall (on the boulder that the pictures don't show you) which is the definition of "X" rated I believe. That aside, pretty cool route that scared the crap out of me.
