Long route (do it in a single pitch. Use mid anchor to rap w/ single rope). Textbook cam protects the initial blocky roof (I thought this was the partner thought otherwise...lemme know). Varied climbing follows up to the super fun, upper slab! Great protection and a (rarity for the pass) pretty long route conspire to make this entirely worth the effort!


This is on the left side of Phat City.


Rack to 2". Several small Aliens. 7 bolts.

I thought the crux was between bolts 1 and 2. Fun route.

The climbing on this route is very fun. Unfortunately, at least when I climbed it, it was super dirty. There was guano, sand, and lichen all over at the bottom of the route. Worth doing if clean.
