This is a nice addition to the area with good protection, varied movement and a casual approach.

Climb up featured rock past holes and jugs to a stance at the 4th bolt where a balancy highstep gains better holds and then a ledge. Clip the next bolt (5th) with a runner, shuffle left on a ledge and then up rust-colored intrusions to a tricky hand/foot match sequence and the top. Three stars out of five.

Nice line, fun moves with a few crux moves. Top with the orange colored chert was done a variety of ways from our group. Fun.
