A nice varied route with crimps, fancy footwork and even a roof/overlap to pass at one point. This makes it a nice full body warm up.

Start with a "boulder problem" just left of the left facing corner and roof of Technical Second. Climb a few hard moves to a stance then up a low angle yet quite tricky face heading a little left toward a roof. This is the crux for many (however I am more challenged by the tricky face climbing section). Anyway, the roof is not too bad to pass if you find the right holds. fter this the anchors are right there.

Often wet but worth doing when dry.


Just left of the left facing corner and roof of Technical Second.


7 bolts to anchors.

Solid 5.9 Like so many other climbs to the right, from the last bolt to the anchors might be the crux... who stole the holds from the top of this cliff?

Really enjoyable variety of moves. Enjoyable sequence for the mini-roof section. I found the top to not be an issue (even in wet conditions) as there were plenty of solid stances to gain.
