Though quite short, this route is quite fun. If there, I'd recommend it for the average Joe...though Josefina might find it reachy. Move up into a small nook of sorts with underclings. You can awkwardly reach out right to clip the 2nd bolt. Now the fun...move right with a smidge of reach and power to just the right spot, get your feet set out right, pull up and around. Move back left to a jug, then up and right. Clip the anchors and smile.

This may feel 5.10 for the tall dude.

For more details, check out Mark's new guide...fading memory is not as good.


This may the shortest route at the cliff. It is the rightmost bolted line on the 3rd face from the left of this cliff band.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

As noted in the description, despite its length, this route is actually a super-fun extended boulder problem. I'd recommend it.
