Description 

A nice long route with difficulty somewhere in the 5.11 range depending upon the exact path taken- going too far right is supposedly the "real route" and the way to make this 11d as it was initially rated. However, the most natural line, which is direct and well within reach of the bolts feels at the easy end of 5.11. Steep moves on good holds lead to a more vertical wall with smaller but still positive holds.


Location 

Just to the right of the approach this is the first sport route encountered. It is a few feel right of a black handcrack ("No Return") and is at the right edge of a small arch in the rock at the start.


Protection 

10 bolts to a bolted anchor, 60 meter rope.
