A high first bolt but the climbing is easy off the ground. Despite its brevity, it's really quite good and harder for the grade than some other routes in the area. Expect thin feet most of the way on vertical to steep rock with sharp incuts and pockets for fingers. The crux seemed to be going from bolt 1 to bolt 3.


On the obvious south face of the pillar. The approach trail from The Oven should take you directly to it.


3 bolts to chain anchor.
