Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>


Climb past tufas and cool flowstone features to reach a 4' roof. Powerful moves will lead past this feature to a perplexing and difficult traverse leading right to the high blocky arete. Follow arete to the top.


Starts 15 feet right of Couples Fear Factor.


6 bolts to chains. The first bolt is as low as the rock allows. Easy to reach but use a stick clip if you are uncomfortable.

Man after 4th bolt is where the line starts.

Was on this line last weekend. Left four draws on it. Not to be considered booty.

2 stars. Unfortunately how this line is bolted it makes the route scary/dangerous. There is no reason why at all that the FA'ers couldn't have moved the bolts to make it safer. But whatever. It's not my money/hardware. Just kinda sad. Good moves though.
