Steep start up to a couple of big moves to reach the traverse. Traverse right on good holds but with really high feet. Clipping the anchor is a bit funky. Even though the anchor hangs down below the roof rope drag on this is pretty bad if you have someone following which is really the only way to clean it because of the traversing nature.


The furthest right of the center grouping of routes. Climbs up about 20 feet, then traverses right for about 20 feet.


Bolts and a chain anchor.

Bottom starts out with a fun easy sequence on positive holds to the 3rd bolt. I recommend setting up a TR at the anchors and having another person climb up the old belayer side of the rope to clean the draws. A few spinning bolts.
