Description 

This route is OK for the grade, but not nearly as good as several surrounding routes. There are several fairly large loose blocks that are wedged on this climb that would be very detrimental to the belayer if they get yarded out. With that being said, it's worth doing if you're there.


Location 

Share's the start of The Energy Blues and verges right towards the arete on the slab section. The crux is up high and is pulling onto the arete to get up to final bolt and anchors.

Protection 

6 bolts, chain anchors (rap or lower off)

The final mantel over after the crack has a lot of dirt. The ridge is positive but the mantle over can be sketchy because of this.
