Yes. This would be the crux.


1st 10 ft still a little loose..,but protected by low 1st bolt.


start under small roof.


anchors with biners. short runout after crux can be protected with medium sized gear.

May be harder now that Joe broke a hold at the crux. Weird bolt placement at the top.

I also found the bolting to be a bit odd. I thought there was a bit of a move at the bolt that ends the runout. Admittedly I didn't look for gear options.

If you're afraid of heights, there is a REALLY LONG runout to the first bolt above the ledge. I protected with a cam, but someone heavier than myself might not want to trust gear there. And there's a really hard scary way to clip that bolt or the easy not-so-scary way. I tried them both and would highly recommend the easy way.

The bottom of this is pretty grainy. If it got as much traffic as the upper wall routes do it would be a lot more fun. Very challenging at the grade. Stay left to get the upper headwall bolt clipped and it isn't too hard. Another bolt would be nice.
