This is a really nice 5.11 that goes to the top of the cliff. Climb up the slightly overhanging white rock finding positive jugs in between sloppers. The crux is over within the first few bolts. Continue up to reach a large ledge a little over the half way mark. Here you'll see an old pin anchor. Continue up the arete to gain the upper face. The difficulty decreases substantially as you near the top, however the top is still quite fun.


This route is just to the left of U Boat. From the approach trail, head right passing the tall overhanging section of rock.


9 bolts, 1 shut and 1 bolt anchor.

Yep, never did fix the anchors on this route. It was one of my first bolted routes (2002? I don't remember, Mark may). If anyone would like to "fix" the anchors please do!

In any case, Mark and I had the FA for this route.

This is an amazing route. One of my favorite 5.11s in the gorge, pretty sustained for the first 4 bolts then after that it lightens up a good amount.
