The start moves up through a unique horn/jug, to a crux at the first bolt. The moves afterward become easier, but due to the bulgy nature of the route it actually becomes pumpy. The routes crux comes at the top and includes surmounting a slopey bulge, and a low angle undercling in a large hueco. Cool route, well bolted.


Third route in from the right end of the platform.


6 bolts, chain anchors

you can skip the last bolt, it's just below your waist when clipping the chains, only like 4 feet above the second to last bolt, and you basically make one move from there to the chains. also standing up into the undercling and clipping from it is baller.
