Don't kid yourself. Typical bold climbing that gave this mountain it's trademark. A testpiece if you will, as it's advisable to be solid at 5.10 before leading here. Excellent face climbing with a couple of buldges that spice things up. If you can't get to the first bolt in comfort then the upper section will have you puckered out.


Climb the water streak to the first bolt on 3 bolt. 2 bolt anchor to rap.


3 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.
