Description:

Located about 5 minutes down the Lower Gorge approach road on your left. Has the distinction of having probably the shortest approach of any climb in the gorge! Good edges lead up to a techie horizontal traverse(1st crux), then up to an overlap, over this (crux) leads to thin pockets on a steepish feeling headwall to the anchors. Better than it looks!

Descent Options:

Rap/Lower from Mussy Hooks

4 out of 5 stars Wow...awesome route!

Way cool route. Excellent engineering & what was even nicer was that my girlfriend (who has difficulty w/ 5.10's) could follow it by traversing lower then the bolt line. Another neat thing was that the belayer can actually belay from off the road in case anyone is coming up or down it. And lastly- the approach- bitchin' fun!
