First done with 2-3 bolts and gear... pretty amazing when you see the blank upper face of this one pitch route. Follow the second bolt line starting out from the base of the rock, from the left. Turn two roofs, then follow the left set of bolts up to the ledge up a steep slab.


2 bolt anchor at the bottom, 11 bolts, to a 2 bolt anchor up top.

This is a fine route. The first roof is the crux with the second roof being fairly easy. Also, solid final moves to the belay ledge. Note, though, that the anchor does not have rap rings on it. You can traverse left to the anchor for BSD (which does have rap rings), but I don't think you can then lower and top rope the route with a 60M rope. Probably best to belay at the anchors and have your second follow the route.

Thanks to the drought, as of 7/24/02 this route could be climbed from the ground up. The rock below the two anchor bolts is easy although slick. This provides a nice alternative if Bottom Side Down is occupied. Great climb with a tricky crux!!

I was able to traverse in from the base of Bottom Side Down to access. Fun consistant climbing.
