This route is located just to the south of the 5.9 face route on Duncan's Ridge. It is about 35 to 40 feet in height and has a mini-roof about 15 feet up on it. The crux of the route is about three quarter's of the way up the route.


A few hexes and about 25 feet of webbing work pretty well for top roping this route.

This route also had 5 retro-bolts (now removed) to anchor bolts.

I did a great lead slightly to the right of where the guy is in the picture. Get a cam or two in the broken, horizontal crack halfway up and a great small cam halfway up the second section.

There are no bolts on the way up this route, only 2 bolts at the top for an anchor (no chains). Wouldn't really call it a 5.8, maybe a 5.7, the only real challenge is on the slab near the top.
