Description:

Pull a short bouldering problem to gain the first bolt and continue up nice horizontal jugs to a small overhang. Use the thin crack and tricky feet to pull up and over to a ledge. Two more bolts and another interesting bouldery sequence will get you to the anchors of either route to the right or left. The old guide has this route crisscross and meander to the left, but it is climbed direct these days. Most feel the route is 5.11a or b.

Descent Options:

shares a 2 bolt anchor with the either of the neighboring right or left routes.

4 out of 5 stars Tough little climb!

Pulling the crux is not easy, especially getting the onsight. If you use the large feature to the right of the bolt line to bypass the crux, the route is maybe a 5.10.
