Description:

Short overhanging route on southside bluff. The climb is all by itself. Climb on huge holds to anchors. VERY overhanging with some big moves between bolts. Cool climb. The route is longer than 25ft since you start so far back in the cave. Probably only .11a/b but could be harder for a shorter climber.

5 out of 5 stars Two Bolts

This is not very tall but really steep. It is probably the funnest two bolter that I have ever done.

4 out of 5 stars Very Fun!

Can be highball, better use a spotter and pad then just drop down from the anchors. To me it is easier than on rope......

4 out of 5 stars Steep!

This route made me feel good inside. The hardest part for me was clipping the second bolt- mostly a mental thing b/c it's so close to the ground. I agree that it's not 12a.

4 out of 5 stars great route

i think i remember doing this one while it was pretty warm. super fun. don't think it is 12a. i'll agree with the other ascents grade of 11b. i remember this one kicking my butt, until i came back from hueco with a little steep experience.
