At the top of the approach gully, just around left of the main vertical face of the 5.10 Wall, is a large left facing corner, capped by a big 2 tiered roof. This route climbs the corner, making use of the flakes and horizontal seams to reach an anchor just left of the roof. Most of the climbing is 5.11, with one hard section that brings it up to 12b.

Starts just left of the 5.10 wall proper, above the beginning of the low angled death slab above the Contact Area


sport, 8 bolts to anchors. Stick clip the first bolt.
