On the main, left (White) face, follow the left bolt line to the top anchors. The crux is right off the first bolt and eases higher. The rock continues to exfoliate, so be prepared for very small flakes to come off and fall on your belayer. Fun line, similar to its neighbor. Maintains the original bottom bolt.


You can't miss the start on a nice, flat, dirt pad.


8 bolts to a chain top anchor.

Quality route. Nimble, slabby climbing at points. The crux is at passing the first bolt, possible the second crux is passing the fifth bolt. The people who set this route knew what they were doing.
