Fun multipitch route with steep, airy climbing. Can be wet in early season. First pitch 10d, second 10c/d, third 10a/b. The end of the second pitch is powerful and contrived, and can easily be climbed around at 5.6 R. The 5.10a/b crux on the 3rd pitch is a bit spicy!
See red line in area photo.
Lots of bolts (12 or 14 on first pitch I think?), bolted anchors, and an intermediate rap anchor to allow 3 raps with a single 60m rope (watch rope ends!).

Lisa Buchina and I climbed the route on July 4th and found most of the route contrived. The crux on the first pitch is downright weird and awkward. There's a lot of loose rock on this route. There are some bolts missing that make the third pitch very exciting. Very awkward finish. Because of body positioning, the route felt more trad then sport, despite the bolts.
