Boulder through the first two clips to a ok rest. Continue up through a few hard moves to a very good rest. Make sure to recover for the last hard moves before the anchor.


The first route on the wall on the left from the top of the approach trail. 10 feet to the left of Check Your Grip.


9 bolts to chains. Sometimes there are fixed draws on the route and the anchors.

If you outweigh your belayer by a good margin, definitely consider anchor her/him on the tree near the base. The slightly overhanging start, coupled with bolts in a perfect line, results in very little friction in the system and a fall at the crux means you'll likely pull your belayer up and collide. As of April 2015 there was some old rope tied around the tree serving as a convenient belayer anchor.
