The difficulties are within the first few bolts, and rather bouldery in nature. The middle is easy, and a small crux at the finish as you reach the ledge.

3 out of 5 stars Good, but not great.

Not a bad little route. If your bouldering skills are sharp, you should be able to walk through the crux. This climb is a one, or two, move wonder. Once you get over the overhanging start, the climb is essentially over.

This one took a lot of effort, as I recall. I don't do a great deal of bouldering, so this one was a struggle. All of the difficulties are contained between the first few bolts, and the crux is located at the second bolt as you deadpoint with your right hand up to a side pull. This sidepull can be sen in the photograph I have submitted. It is at the 5 o'clock position in relation to the second bolt. See it? If you make it past the second bolt, then this one is in the bag.
