The 10s are so steep here even drop-knees are need...


Climb straight up water stain/groove right of Jawbreaker. Stem past crux about half way up. Continue over roof and watch for the anchors on the face right of the groove. Kind of hard to see.


Just right of Jawbreaker. Follows the obvious water stained groove.


bolt, chains up top

Wear a helmet belaying on this route. There is a rotten section which also happens to be the hardest section. Pop rocks indeed. Fun route though.

Seems to be cleaning up nicely.

I don't recall anything loose, 4/2011.
I did think one of the clips (~the 4th, the one right above climbers head in pic by Christian) should be moved to the right so it's in line with the other bolts. As it is, the stemming moves over the bolt are an almost assured right leg catcher/flip over if you pop. Otherwise, fun route with a nice section of cruxy climbing.
