Sean heading up to the pretty view of this route.


Half jug fest, half low-angled scramble to a large ledge. Don't let the rope drag pull you down.


The farthest left route of the newly developed section of the cliff; around the corner & to the right of Fashion Sense. Just a few feet off the trail heading towards the Far East.


9 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Rappel, or have your rope eaten by rope drag.

I believe this route has been extended. There are now three sets of anchors. The lowest anchors come after the hardest and best climbing. The second set are slightly higher but too recessed and likely the reason folks have complained of rope drag. The third and final set comes after an additional three or so bolts. The climbing is less than vertical and on slightly mossy terrain. This section adds length but not much else.
