    Generally referred to as "The Kontos Sport Route". FA Tom Kontos. No anchor on top.

    An awkward climb that lacks good flow. Found the bolts to be well placed certainly not PG-13, wouldn't even call the top angled slab runout.

    Definitely a solid 5.10b/c route with a runout slab section at the top.

    The bolting on the route is pretty awkward and requires 3 runners through the most difficult section of the climb. Because there is no anchor at the top, you have to traverse far to the right of the line (15/20 ft.) and use the large tree to lower off the climb. This make retrieving gear very difficult.
