From Jeff Butterfield's Guide: A quality route. Climb up the yellow wall ten feet right of Small Crack Warning using a short, thin crack for gear. Move up and left past a somewhat hidden bolt to an awkward stance beneath a small roof. Clip a bolt over the roof, then pull over it into the crux, a flared corner with a bolt. Move up and left to reach good holds, then up and right to a 2 bolt anchor.


10 feet right of Small Crack Warning


mixed gear, small cams and nuts.

Curious as to why the OP listed this as PG13? The route climbs easily to bomber gear, and is then a tightly bolted clip-up to the anchors: About as "G" as it comes. In any case, a very worthwhile and fun pitch!

Agreed. This is definitely a G mix route!

There was a #0 C3 that was stuck below the first bolt on the route all summer (idk if its still there). Only PG-13 if you struggle to climb 5.6, in which case tread with caution ;) !! Excellent route, definitely worth doing for those breaking into 5.11

Great route! Definitely not PG13 - I would have called it G. Small gear at the bottom and then 3 superb bolts to the anchor.
