Looking up.


Climb up the easy, low-angle left edge of the slab to the high first bolt. Crunchy rock at the roof keeps things interesting but there's a fine jug to clip the second bolt. From there the rock improves significantly as you climb up a small corner.

Enjoy airy moves as you swing out right and up to two finger cracks/flakes. Crank some layback moves and up on the big flake. Tricky moves up and left to the corner take you to the anchor.


Uphill and around the corner from Turkey Bacon and Concealed Crustose. It stays shady for a lot of the day thanks to trees and its position in a big corner.


9 bolts to lowering anchors.

Good movement, climb will likely get another star once it has more traffic.
