Description:

The first pitch has a very hard bouldery start, that's probably only possible if you are at least 5'8"" (or super strong). If you can't do it, grab the sling to get established. After that the first pitch is awesome and goes at about 5.10b/c. The second pitch is the prize though - it goes through the overhanging red headwall on big jugs, except for one crimpy section (the crux - about 5.10d); which is down low. The best route on the wall.

Descent Options:

Rappell from Chains.

5 out of 5 stars One of my favourites

I often climb this route as one pitch, and then lower down to the mid station, allowing the second to follow it in one pitch and then be lowered to the ground (I then rappel). Definitely one of the best routes here. Getting off the ground is tricky, but can be done with the right sequence and body tension (I can do it and I'm only 5'8".
