Only Picture I had of this route. Hopefully it giv...


Face climb up this steep face with nice varnished holds left of a large flake. Easy downclimb off the backside.


You'll find it in a narrow corridor on a short face with a giant white flake visible on the approach.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Revisited this after many years and it appears holds have broken in the vicinity of the second bolt bumping up the grade slightly.

Easy moves past the first bolt lead into a somewhat reachy and bouldery sequence starting from the slanting crack below the 2nd bolt that ends when you've latched the patina rail at the 3rd bolt. Higher, fun moves past the last bolt as you switch directions liebacking and finish up a thin flake. Two stars out of five.
