BETA PHOTO: Meeting up with the right-facing corner on Posey's...


Diagonal up and left across the face to meet up with the right-facing corner. Follow the corner to the top. For bonus points, when the corner is about to angle off to the left, continue straight up over juggy overhangs. (It's still 5.6.)


On the left end of a small, low-lying ledge on the face to the climber's left of the descent gully on the left side of the Island.


Standard rack for leading. The usual long slings are required for toproping.

A great beginner route, but not for a beginning leader. I have put probably 15-20 new or newish climbers on this route, and EVERYONE falls off the beginning. The move getting to the horizontal just under the first small roof is tough. It's steep on small holds and reachy, and you will not have any gear in. If you blow it here you'll take a 5-6ft ground fall, so bring a crash pad. You could always rap down and place that first piece or something, because the rest of the route is great for a beginning leader. This route has a two-bolt anchor.

Significant, annoying, irritating rope drag if runner's aren't used frequently. I.e., quickdraws are not sufficient if you don't want to drag a rope up with you on lead. Rope drag increased by starting right of route to eliminate unprotected crux at bottom.
