Very fun climbing on flakes, crimps and a jug here and there. Start can be damp several days after a rain. The start is a little less than picturesque, but quickly turns quality. The crux is up high on the route after the burn sets in. Overhangs more than it looks. Cool looking cobble rock!


Left end of right cliff. First bolted climb coming down from the center of the two walls.


4 bolts, ring shuts

Great rock and excellent sustained climbing to the anchors. Even when damp, this route climbed well.

Although it isn't a jughaul past the opening moves, there were plenty of good holds and fingerlocks throughout, nothing on this climb felt harder than 5.9 or easy 10a.

I moved a little left under the anchor and it felt like 10- when I stayed straight directly under the anchor it felt like 11-
