Fairly easy, nice 2-3 finger pockets/jugs to grab on to but not a lot of good foot holds. Generally easiest to use the hand holds as foot holds as well, which could result in sore toes. The first part of the climb is quite vertical, but the top section leans into the rock.


Approach is the path down to Zorro wall. When wall is reached, trail goes around a big bulge with some bolted routes. Route is just right of a sharp corner with another bolted route.


Well-bolted. Around 5 bolts, two bolt anchor. No chains on the anchor.

This route is a sandbag at 5.8, probably closer to 5.9 or 9+. If your a 5.8 leader get ready to flail.

Agree with Steven. Both my wife (5'5") and I (6'0") thought that this was harder than Cirque, which is supposedly a 10a/b. We'd have put this one around a 9+, too.

FYI saw someone kick off a giant plate of limestone while climbing this route. Beware.
