Description 

An easy scamper to the second bolt sets you up for some long reaches from a sloping shelf and sidepulls. Camp at the jugs, and prepare for the steep crimps above. Sequential and sharp pulls follow for the next three bolts with a long move to a decent rail. Clip and sprint through the remaining crimps to a stance above the lip. Get your slab focus honed and balance your way on easier climbing to the anchor. This has solid rock the whole way.

One can traverse right under the second bolt and follow the large flake up to the jugs if so inclined. This is an easier entry than straight up but arguably less classic.

The second bolt may be a stretch for shorter climbers.


Location 

This is currently the second route from the left. Begin just right of a right-facing dihedral.


Protection 

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
