At the first pitch anchor. The crux is the roofs ...


This has fun moves up clean rock!

Pitch one: 5.10, 100 feet. Climb over 3 bolts to a ledge, then clip 3 more to gain a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor. The crux is protected by the last 2 bolts passing through a couple of small roofs...super fun!

Pitch two: 5.9, 100 feet. Climb straight up clean, sustained 5.9 for several bolts before getting a well-deserved break in the route. Continue up some more tricky terrain before reaching the comfy 2 bolt belay ledge. There are maybe eight bolts to an anchor.


This is the route furthest right on the wide Open Spaces Wall. The first bolt is up high after scrambling up some easier terrain.


10-12 draws is probably too much. Two raps on quicklinks get you back down.
