Special Forces is the middle line that starts just...


This is a really fun route with a hard clip and an intense roof crux to a very pumpy headwall.

Start with some steep straight forward 5.11 climbing to a nice jug at 20 feet. Make a tough clip, and muscle through a very steep roof crux on underclings and sidepulls to a good rail at the lip of the roof. A few strangely hard pulls on some awkward holds gets you to another rest. Hold it together on the extended final crux and then follow good holds to the anchor.


On the left side of the cave before it curves back towards the left flank. One route left of the route with black hangers.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor.
