The best route on the wall, Perplexus tackles a steep line 10-15 feet right of Cryptogram. A bouldery and somewhat sequential start lead to a decent stance. From there, the angle and difficulty of the climb ease slightly, but eighty feet of highly consistent, solid 5.10 climbing remain. A great route on awesome stone.


Right of Cryptogram. A 60M line is required.


Bolts. A long draw on the fourth or fith bolt (obviously right of the others) eases drag considerably.

Definitely the best route on the wall. Consistently steep, great bolt placement, good holds, and lots of flags and crosses make it flow as smoothly as a gym route. Highly recommended (though if you made the effort to hike up to this crag, you might as well do the other routes to the left as well)
