Description:

Located at the back of the Well in a neat atmosphere. A bouldery start off, ironically a boulder to the first clip is the crux of the climb. A stickclip serves very well here. Fun juggy, slightly overhanging moves past three more bolts to the station on the top of the big boulder. 10m.

5 out of 5 stars Was that a Marmot?

The start is adventurous, but low enough that you can just hop back onto the starting platform if you blow the move. Once you see the trick the rest of the climb goes down very smoothly. 2nd bolt was a spinner, so heads up.

3 out of 5 stars Hard start...easy finish!

Id say the start is a 5.10c and the rest is maybe a 5.10a....the crux is definately getting off the ground on this one but once youve figured the moves out its smooth sailing on pretty big bomber holds to the top! If you are going to TR this one I would reccomend rapping in and clipping a draw on the second bolt to avoid the swing and sawing your rope on the sharp rock jutting out to the left of the climb!

4 out of 5 stars Fun problem

The upper section is much nicer than the bottom.

Seems hard for the grade. Sketchy bolt placement at 4th bolt... Don't fall making next clip! Check the nut on first bolt. It was almost completely off.

Cool climbing though. Just kinda sketchy protection.
