Description 

This is a trad-protected route that has a diverse set of holds (flakes, pockets, edges, etc.). There didn't really seem to be a well-defined crux. Some poor quality rock at the top detracts from the overall aesthetics of the route. Otherwise, this is a stellar line.


Location 

This route is located to the right of another trad line with a wide fingers start leading to a chimney. Both of these trad lines are located to the right of "U2RNXS" on the tall, free-standing formation that is closest to the pullout for the Rock Garden.


Protection 

Wired stoppers and cams to 2.5".

There is an anchor at the top consisting of two bolts that are nearly in-line with each other vertically but offset by an appropriate amount. The bolts each have welded cold-shuts that are linked by a section of chain which seems to offer only a single link to thread a rope through. I threaded both cold-shuts and lowered off with no problems.

Watch out for raptors using the nest in the spring!
