Description:

This was originally rated a 5.7 but a key hold broke off so now it's a 5.8+. This route lies on the face to the left of Dum Roodle. Follow the crack straight up to clip the bolt off to the left. The crux is moving up on the crimpers. Climb up to the horn on the right then straight up the crack. It might be wise to place a small nut in the crack before going for the bolt clip otherwise you face a 15ft ground fall.

It is really just one pitch. An interesting face move down low, then the rest goes pretty fast. Nice and long, worth it from that perspective alone. With Stacy.

Fun climb, as I see it two different approaches, face and crack alternatives, did both, pretty easy warmup climb.

Really fun climb. I don't know where the 5.8 section is as the climbing was pretty casual.
