At the anchors, rope's on the line. Sweet n short.

A varied technical face route that we thought harder then its given rating of 5.9. It sees a great deal of traffic and has probably eroded up in difficulty.


The next route over right from Mary Jane.


Four (4) bolts to its own anchors.

Would agree that this is harder than its posted rating and will also note that it's a hell of a lot nicer line than many in this area. Worth doing for sure!
