5 out of 5 stars Difficult to find with Vogel guide

because there's no picture and the description is piss-poor. The main feature is a large shield of blank rock with two lines of bolts up it and a chimney below and to the right. Both routes go up the chimney/dihedral and then step out left to clip the first bolt. This route is good; the beginning is a little contrived but the actual upper face section is great--similar climbing to White Rain, but not as steep or strenuous. Josh-style bolts; no gear. Bolt anchors with destroyed webbing (I didn't have a knife or I would have cut it), walk off right.
