Eds. This description was added to increase the information provided. This route is a sport climb up a very smooth-appearing face with virtually no holds. From its appearance from the ground, it looks nearly impossible to climb. Apparently, there are holds. Kudos to the first ascentionist in sending it. Early on, there was a broken hold which was apparently glued back on.


QDs only. This 40 foot route needs 6 - 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

Soon to be a classic! Don't be scared off by this one as there are several hidden ledges in the middle of the bare face. The hardest moves are down low (bolts 3 and 4).

Odd route.

I thought the route was fun until the fourth bolt, where it seemed to unravel a bit. I moved out to the right arete above the jug edge (anyone else do this?). The slopey topout was still a bit lichenous, but this should improve with traffic. The route has great stone sans one reinforced hold at the lip of the roof.
