Description:

First bolted route up and to the left from the approach, some scrambling up a slab to get to the start of the route. Climb on good holds. A good introduction to steeper terrain. It is possible to top-out on gear, past the anchors, to the trees above.

Descent Options:

Rappel off anchors. Or, scramble down gully to left if topped out.

4 out of 5 stars Sharp!

Near the start there is a good really solid (hand) hold on the top of a flake, but that top edge is really sharp, and hurts to hold. Again, though, a tough 5.8 -- couldn't lead it, had to TR.
