Climb steep, orange rock with the hardest moves at the beginning. This direct start is best started from the top of the dagger of rock at the base. it is also possible to avoid the direct start and start in a crack with broken rock on the left. Starting from here is a fine option on towrope or you will probably want the second bolt pre-clipped if doing so on lead. This lefthand start is more in the 5.9 range.

Ample rests and large holds characterize the rest of the climb which ends below the large roof.

This reclaimed route takes the upper path of a previously bolted route and was straightened out and cleaned up to provide for a new moderate route in an increasingly popular, moderate zone.


It is on the far right of the section of wall with the Sno Cone moderates. Look for a sharp dagger of a rock protruding from the ground below the steep, direct start. It is left of the two slabby moderates.


10 bolts and anchor.

Direct start is hard if you are less than 6 feet tall.

No longer the 1st route after Pistola.
