getting to the first bolt


Most left route. Climb past the first bolt in the blocky roof then up and left across a ledge and to the last four bolts. Climb left at the second bolt for steeper moves and more exposure.

Size 4-5 stoppers also works really well in a couple of the cracks on this climb.

This was my favorite route on the wall. The movement over the roof was a lot of fun. I used a .75 (green) Camalot in the little dihedral below the roof and 2 (gold) Camalot right under the roof.

A couple 4' slings would be nice if you're toproping, since the bolts and chain are far back.
