Start up Team Scumbag, clip the first bolt on that route, then continue straight up past three more bolts to anchors just below the top. The climbing is enjoyable and well-protected - yet another fun, moderate route to do when in the area.


Located just left of ZZZZZ near the left margin of smooth rock that characterizes that climb.


4 bolts, pro to 1.5", anchors

A fun climb, but the crux seemed pretty darn stiff for 10c. The bolt anchors seem to lie a bit to the left of the finish, but I presume this was to keep them away from ZZZZZ.

Went to lead this and I chickened out trying to get to the 2nd bolt (above the bolt shared with Team Scumbag). The moves were harder and steeper than I wanted to do 8' above the last bolt - facing a possible fall onto the protruding dyke below. I ended up on Team Scumbag instead - which is a fine route.

We then TR'd this climb and it felt around 10d. Good (and sharp) rock down low leads to grainier rock above.

I agree with Randy and Andy, more like .10+, airy between bolts 1 and 2, good route.
