Description 

Fantastic route for the grade! I wouldn't say there is truly a crux on this climb but it would be constant 5.8 and fun. Sport route up a steepening wall with good holds. Excellent route!


Location 

This route is the first sport route right of the large obvious black varnish section on the Panty wall and just barely right on the pine tree. You can't miss it, just follow the bolts!


Protection 

Total sport route with 6 bolts and chain anchors at the top just over the lip on the varnished wall. Safe and well protected, go for it!

This was my first lead at Red Rock and a nice way to find out what the rock feels like. Fun route!

Very soft for 5.8 I think it should be 5.7 lots of holds no crux.

Slightly easier than the route to its right, very relaxing.

On 1/14/10, the LVCLC replaced the anchor of this route- the right hand bolt was being torqued by the patina jugs below due to the angle- the anchor was moved right about 18" to a better location for both the route and the anchor- both new bolts are 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece with Fixe rap hangers.

good example of a sport 5.8

We climbed this on 3/3/2014 - The route was a good practice for beginner climbers (less than 2 years of climbing). It's a really nice spot with clean rock and a beautiful view. Bunch of other 5.7 bolted climbs on this wall.
