This is a great little route usually offering shade from the afternoon sun. It can be easily viewed by looking up while standing in front of The Kitchen.

Belay from the ground, or there is another ledge that can be acquired by making two 5.5 moves. However, this ledge is small enough that it would require an anchor to be built. After this ledge the wall slopes out and the holds are funny; it takes about two or three moves to get through it. This is the definite crux; the rest of the climb is significantly easier, but still very good.


Take a full rack with you. Although this route isn't long we placed everthing from nuts to medium sized cams.

I mostly used the right crack for jamming and the left crack for gear. I used 4 #.3 C4s, 1 #.4 C4, 1 #.75 C4, and a red #1 C3 near the top. This route really takes all sizes and I could have easily used #4 C4 in several places. Long runners/slings definitely will help reduce rope drag!
