Awesome route. Solid 5.10 climbing to the second bolt. Runout between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. Potential groundfall, though the climbing eases drastically. After you are about 20ft past the 2nd bolt, you can either clip a piton (unnecessary), or clip the first set of anchors. If you feel like you want to climb some more, clip the left anchor and climb up and left past one more bolt and mantle onto a big block and rap off some rusty chains. DEFINITELY worth doing to second half.


This is the furthest right route before the Kingdom of Ging.


3 bolts, 1 pin, sport anchors for the first set, chain links for the second.

Be prepared to pull stout 5.9 moves with your feet above the second bolt. I recommend not falling on this one, but with a competent belayer, it would be pretty hard to hit to ground. Good clean fun.
