Very bouldery route. First crux can be done either in the crack (Jimmy and Mark's beta) or on the arete (my preferred way). After this is a couple bolts of 5.10-ish climbing to a stance, then the second crux, pulling through the bulge to a gaston. This is more powerful than the first crux but felt easier.


On the right side between two crack routes (the right one is bolted on the upper half). Goes through the obvious bulge.


9 bolts. Ring anchors at top.

Got on this route today, balls ass hard. 2 very definite cruxes. Pulling past the second draw and pulling the roof. Very cool, I took the arete and crimped my way to a hand heel match. And the roof, gaston hard to the finish. Felt like 12d to me, but with beta and lots of time on the route, 12c seems reasonable. I also pulled off a fair amount of loose rock.
