Description 

The climb starts up hollow flakes to a couple of bolts that gain a ledge below a crack. From here, you can belay or just continue up the crack over one bolt and into another crack that gains a ledge with a bolted anchor (100 feet).

Pitch 2 starts with the crux move over a bolt and up into a fun jam crack that eventually leads back to the face up more bolts to a ledge with a bolted anchor (100 feet).


Location 

The route starts just to the right of a short 4 bolt line that goes up to the first ledge with anchors. It is to the right of Sandstoner's Highway.


Protection 

At least six draws and several long runners are needed. A set of TCUs and doubles of Camalots #1-3 should be more than enough. The second rap station may need webbing.

Both pitches can be easily linked.
