Description 

Start at the lowest point of the cliff, making some delicate moves up to the first bolt at 15 ft.

Climb up past 3 bolts to a right facing corner with a crack in it. Bring a 0.5 Camalot or equivalent for the crack. Pull into a stance in an alcove, clip a bolt, and puzzle over where to go next.

This is an interesting route with several cruxes that are as much mental as physical.


Location 

Starts at the lowest point of the cliff, right of the route WMP.


Protection 

Bolts and 1 or 2 finger sized cams to .5.
Bolted anchors.

Nice route where you get to stand on nothing and hold on to even less. Rock is "textured". Not one to criticize those who put the time and effort into bolting these routes, but bolt locations on this wall are questionable and detract from the great climbing.

Not sure if this is an update... but this route is bolted as a sport rout and has rap hangers at the top. The first bolt is high up (~15ft) but you can get a small cam in the flake before it. other than that optional piece, no gear necessary.
