Straddling the cave at the start.

Description 

This climbs the northern line of bolts on the West face. It starts just above a cave. It angles left on holds that are trickier than they first appear. The placements are excellent.


Protection 

2 anchors atop, and 4 quickdraws for the climb.

Good early season climbing. But honestly if it is the summer time keep driving.

Forget straddling the roof at the bottom anymore. My friend Adam and I did the climb today and the block for the left foot came crashing down to the cave floor.

Guess this changes that first move.

Must have been all the rain we've gotten this spring.

Lucky no one was hanging out under there when it happened. It was a pretty big chunk!

Still a good climb, but very hot in the late afternoon. We managed to start from almost inside the cave and work our way up. Be careful with a very good looking hold to the right about 2-3 moves up from the cave, it feels very loose. Test your holds before committing to them =)

Looked at this climb and thought 'wtf how is that 5.10a'. But give it a try. It is a slopey climb and and blast. try it, you'll love it
