Description:

The oasis is about 150 ft up and the easiest access is runout 5.9 slab. This route starts off the right side of the oasis. I was told by a local welder/climber that the name was the bow, for the stellar pitch. I think the real name is Korean. First pitch is 5.9 crack, second pitch 10+ slab with a broken crack above. 4th pitch stellar corner arching crack--the bow 5.10. Above this is a low angle OW grovel which leads to a short hard roof, capped by a bit of endurance crack 11B head right to the belay.

Descent Options:

Rappel off the huge rings with the crowd.
