The start to this awesome route

Description 

This is probably the second best route on the cliff, but very good in its own right. Its the third route on the cliff as you approach, the first on the upper wall. A bouldery start leads to awesome climbing on the upper headwall.


Location 

Third route on the cliff from the left.


Protection 

Five bolts

This is not a good route. It's super sandy at the crux which is going to the 2nd bolt and forced. You can do it direct by doing a sandy deadpoint and risk jacking up your ankle, or surf way out right and risk a pendulum if you miss the holds. The rest of the route is pretty good, but the bottom is pretty hectic.

nah, i biffed it like three times onto the first bolt and was fine. it just looks (and feels) scary.

The route is contrived but fun. Stay left for the grade or cut right for the jugs bumping it down to like... 10c/d.

start is the crux and is not great due to fact that you could deck getting to the second bolt and the hold that get you there are a bit chossy. Thought this was the least impressive route at the crag.
