Description 

Great, well-protected route on clean rock with good holds. The first crux comes before clipping the first bolt. The second comes as the wall steepens after the third bolt. Shares the anchors with Spring Route.


Location 

Starts on the face to the left of Spring Route.


Protection 

6 bolts and an optional 1.5" cam between the second and third bolts.

I climbed this with you in March 2004, and indeed, I remember you mentioning that your wife was in the hospital either recovering from, or preparing to give birth to your daughter! Can't remember the details, but the route was brand new.
