It's a decent route to escape the crowds and warm up the limbs. Rock is a bit sharp, plenty of holds.

Start left on the pockety face following the bolts up along the arete and then back left a bit up to the rap rings.

Crux, if you want to call it that, is the last move or two below the anchor.


Far, far right of red wall; right along a jutting right-facing arete.


Line of bolts up to a rusty double rap anchor. It's just as easy to top off.

This route actually felt harder to me. you really need to search for the best holds otherwise your cranking the grade up. think 5.6 and search for 5.6 holds
