Description 

The crux is early on this one. High step and reach up to a good sidepull. Get a rest on a good ledge and figure out how to get to the next good ledge. Easy peasy after that.


Location 

The route just to the right of Fern Bar.


Protection 

4 bolts and sport anchors.

A small piece of rock for your toe has broken off of this climb making it a bit harder in my opinion. Took a little bit of working to figure out good beta for someone my height. If you're over 6 feet the start could be a fun challenge.

Really tricky start. Climb to the ledge and clip the first bolt. Best of luck after that! Crux is from the starting ledge to the ledge above the first bolt.
