Description 

Climbs the face on the right side of the slabby part of the wall. Start under a small roof. Make an awkward and powerful pull off the ground (crux) and around the right side of the roof to the first bolt, and then continue straight up the slab to a vertical section 2/3 the way up the wall. Varnish crimping brings you to the anchors. Probably 5.9 after the first bolt.


Protection 

Bolts to chains.

Be sure to make the clip at the last bolt before the anchors early, or don't blow it. Its a nasty fall, torn ligament and tendon in the ankle. It was a fun route though with nice moves at the bouldery start. Have fun, Climb safe.

really enjoyable climb, although shorter folks will appreciate someone else hanging the draws on this one- especially the last one.

also, a stick clip is a good idea for this one.
