This climb was originally graded 11a, but is a major sandbag at that grade. At 11c, it’s still actually one of the harder 11c’s at the crag. The crux is moving to the right and surmounting an awkward corner just below the chains – there’s a hidden, small crimper that is key. It can be easily combined with “Econoclimb”. Good luck. As of 2007, there were two bolts at the anchor but no chains.

Descent Options:

Walk off. What I normally do is lower from draws and then walk around and grab the draws at the end of the day. If I remember, I'll put some chains on it this year.

I got the on-sight on this route, but only barely. I've also been subsequently spit off it unceremonously. Finding the crimper is the key.
