Start below a large brown knob in the center of the face, about 5í right of the end of the horizontal crack. Small edges gain the first knob. Continue up past the knobs from the lower, steeper section and run it out from the second bolt on low angle slab. Finish at the anchor below the cap, shared with Knobulator. Good beginnerís lead. Descend via easy walk-off to the northeast, away from the climbs, or down-climb Knobulator.


2 bolts, bolted anchor

Bomber anchors and bolts, thanks! This was actually my friend and my own first outdoor lead climb. To start this route was a little hard but once you reach the first big knob it's very easy and perfect as a beginner lead.
