This is the best route at the crag. Although it has a few rests, the climbing has multiple cruxes and feels sustained. Climb up to clip the 1st bolt before pulling a bouldery move left to reach the shallow, flaring water grooves. Continue past another bolt on the cruxy slab (10+) using the flake-like grooves to reach the horizontal break where you can clip the 3rd bolt and rest before pulling the crux moves. Step right under the crack above and pull a couple hard moves (11c) to surmount the bulge and continue up the crack above (gear) to the bolted anchor at the top.


This is the 1st route you see on the right after coming down the gully. Look for an overhanging section about halfway up and a few bolts (3).


3 quickdraws and a light rack up to a #1 Camalot.
