This line has excellent slab climbing. Start with careful smearing straight up past three bolts to small ledge. After the ledge, the moves through 4th bolt provide more handholds.
This is the first route north of Tempest Toast
. There is a nice large tree at base to mark start of route - can also serve as belay anchor if needed.
4 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
Per Paul Vervalin
: the anchor bolts have been moved up. It is now ~110'.

WARNING!!! The anchor bolts have been moved up on this route. It is no longer an 80' route. Probably closer to 105' - 110'. A 60m rope will leave you 5-10 feet short of the bottom depending on rope stretch. Not a bad down climb but it would suck to fall that last 5 feet or so if you rapped off the end of your rope.

This was my third of fourth lead climb. A very fun and nice beginner lead climb. Great stances around the bolts. Both bolts/rap rings at the top are solid with no wear.
