Description 

An easy slab climb that is spoiled somewhat by some bad rocks and pebbly ledges. Tell your belayer to stand off to the side a bit when you are climbing this bad boy.

Location 

About 30 feet to the left of the large corner. Stays left of the large corner.

Protection 

Bolts, 10 to a two chain anchor. Bring two ropes or a 70 to rap, otherwise walk off left.

Tons of loose rock on this route. Have your partner follow to clean. A 70m will get you down, just barely, if you rap. If you have a 60m, you can rap to chains of Road Rash, and from there to the ground.

The amount of loose rock/gravel on this one is impressive, even by highway standards. It's only for the couple of ok slab moves up high that this route gets more than a bomb.

One 60m rope will get you down if you rap straight past the anchor on road rash. Both rope ends will touch the ground with about a foot of extra.
