This route climbs an obtuse corner up the awesome orange face of E-Ave. Start to the left of the corner and boulder through the overhang past a pin to get establlished on the face. Continue up on thin moves and patina edges - very exciting! There's a bolt at about 60 feet, then continue up in the scoop until the top of the rock is reached. I awkwardly traversed/downclimbed to the anchors that are for the bolted routes on the face, I'm not sure this is the best way to descend, post up if anyone knows otherwise.


Adequate pro, bring a supply of thin nuts and smaller cams.

One of the best routes! And the pro is smaller, but very solid. After leading it I set up an anchor in the crack at the top to TR and then the last cleaned up and rapped the anchor of Young Frank.
