  • Description 

    About 50 feet right of Morpheus (large, right-facing corner) are two bolted route on a clean slab. Snooze Button is the route on the right side of the slab. Climb up the steep slab past on good holds to a bulge. Crank over the bulge (crux) and follow a line of bolts up the beautiful slab to the anchor. Great climbing on soild and beautiful rock.

    At around the 4th bolt. At several spots you climb a bit right of the bolts. Above Luke you can climb right of the corner and then step left around the arete, or, a little harder, and more in line with the bolts, swing around the arete lower.

    Fun route on excellent rock. This area is in the shade in the late afternoon, making it a good destination for after-work climbing.

    Another nice route on this wall. Nice climbing with an interesting crux.

    We climbed here at about 11am and it was IN the sun and hot.

    While short and sort of a one-move wonder, the crux felt like 10b to me.

    Watch out for a little vertical flake on the bottom portion just after the second bolt?? It creaked a bit when I pulled on it.

    Good climbing throughout. Interesting and not so obvious moves on mostly good rock. Just keep an eye on some of the lower rock as it seems a bit rotten (hollow to the tap).
