Description 

Two pitches of fantastic sport climbing. Recommended.

Pitch 1 (90 ft, 5.11a, BC): Featured tan rock leads to a beautiful corner; pull onto a ledge and finish on devious, slightly overhanging, blocky rock.

Pitch 2 (50 ft, 5.10d, BC): Round the exposed corner and ascend face.

Location 

Second route from the right. Look for the obvious corner.

Protection 

Bolts and chains. If both pitches are climbed two rappels are required to descend.

The first pitch consists of 13 bolts and two sets of anchors. The first set of anchors are open shuts and are optimal for the single pitch variation. The second set are above the ledge are best for belaying on the second pitch.

If the pitches are linked shoulder length slings are recommended where the second pitch traverses under the roof.

The best route I have done in the area! Fun balance moves lead to jug hauling and the money moves at the end. It is at the very far right end of the wall just to the left of the obvious broken blocky corner (Flying Monkeys). Highly recommended
