  • Description 

    A classic route that climbs a very unique sloping ramp. The first pitch (50') is pumpy the whole time and has great rock quality. There is a 2nd pitch that goes at 5.11- I believe, but it rarely gets done.

    IMHO, a glaring omission from Selected Climbs, which ironically features a full-page photo of this route but no description.


    Location 

    Right end of Lower HB. Supposedly is always dry.


    Protection 

    3 bolts and some small-med cams for the 1st pitch. Bolted Anchor. 2nd pitch pro and anchor is unclear.

    A perfect 00 TCU protects the very last hard move.
