Starting at the base of Dirtigo, climb up an left to the arete at the right side of the dirty section of rock. Follow face holds up along the edge with a few comfortable stances. You eventually meet up with the original finish to Dirtigo and gain the quick clips.

The climbing is much like Dirtigo and not much harder, so if you can lead one you can likely lead the other.


Just left of Dirtigo (5.3) is another line of bolts, this one following the arete.


Roughly the same number of bolts as Dirtigo to quick clips.

This route is fun, but it does not have quick clips it just has glue-ins for the anchors ( to lower have the final climb traverse over to Dirtago's anchors and you can easily lower from there), and a bolt is place very weird as it is in a little concave facing the sky. also the is a bolt by the small bush on the way up, it is easily missed. But overall a fun route

Hardware must have been updated in the last year - there are now quick clips on both anchors.

The quick clips are rumored to be added by Richard Parker, he has been going around and updating anchors on routes he uses when he guides. I think its pretty cool of him to aknowledge that he puts wear into the anchors and fixes them. A big thanks to Richard.

The quick clips on this are getting pretty rusty as of august 2013. One of them no longer closes on its own and both have rust all over. I'll try to post a picture if I can. I understand this really isn't a priority route but it could use replacements
