  • Description 

    Ascend steep, blocky rock to a knee-bar rest under the large roof/prow (12a). Launch into a series of very bouldery (V8/9) moves to get established on the exposed prow; finish with 30 feet of enjoyable 11a climibing.


    This is 20 feet right of Interrogation (12+).


    10 bolts (extend draw #5); Fixe traditional ring anchor.

    Nice addition, fellas. Bouldery, interesting moves- difficult to figure out also. I agree a long draw on #5 is crucial. Quite a cool little hang out spot up there too- the yard chair is killer!
