Description:

This route starts on an easy slab just to the left of Deception. Belay just to the left of the first belay of Deception. From here, move out left on the slabs along a small roof and up to a series of three bolts that protect the crux slab moves. Now move into a right facing corner (decent pro) then up into a left facing corner where you need to set up a belay just under the 4 ft (mantle) roof. Now mantle the roof, work your way over some easy slab and over a few easy bulges to the top. Kinda runout but acceptable. Good practice for slab.

4 out of 5 stars Should get more traffic

Not too run out but reasonable. Hard to follow the route but you just look for the bolts and head more or less strait up past the bolts then make your way ever so sligltly to the right into a Left leaning dihedral. Make your anchor in the crack just below the buldge or you'll be hosed unless you have a 70m rope.

We climbed it, but I don't remember it.
