Cleaning the route in 2009


Great beginner slab. Low angle with lots of easy big holds. First bolt is a bit run out for the grade about 15' up. The crux is between the 3rd and 4th bolts.


Right above the benches at Desoto. Currently one of only 2 lead climbing routes at desoto


9 Bolts spaced about 6-8 feet apart. Bring 10-11 draws. Top anchors have a fixed rap ring.
