Short climb up some intersecting cracks to a chossy horizontal. No anchors, despite what the guidebook says. Either down climb or traverse to an adjacent route to descend.


No anchors.

There are no anchors on this route, route is short but fun. Would be nice if someone could add some anchors to this route as described.

Since there are no anchors, the traverse over to the next set is super sketchy. Definitely scarier than the route itself
