Description 

Not for the faint at heart. The crux is committing to start the route. If you don't mind the runout 1st and 2nd bolts, this climb is FUN. This route meanders left and right of the bolts.

  • RCM&W #59, p. 126


Protection 

5 bolts leading to 2 cold shuts at the top. Please use your own gear for toproping.

First bolt is a bit high for comfort, but the stances are pretty solid. The second bolt didn't seem like much of a runout.

The cold shut on the left looks worn about a quarter of the way through. Should probably rap off.

Fun climb - isn't too run out(compared to most routes at RW), but there's a few interesting moves near your 1st and 2nd bolt.

Not a great physical challenge, not a great technical challenge but, for the novice leader, a significant mental challenge. If you're new to leading, expect to learn just exactly how seriously you take your own skill, particularly from the ground up to the second bolt.

I went to the firs bolt from the left. Eeeekie. Go to the first bolt from the right instead! Fun climb.
