Description:

A new (mostly bolted) route up a steep face just to the left of the Slash. Start on a series of seemingly fragile flakes to the first bolt. A few pieces of gear can be found along the way but the route is mostly bolts. The bolts are nearly impossible to spot form the ground, but trust me, their all there. Chains at the top await. 100 ft to the ground. BRILLIANT!

3 out of 5 stars Sport climb?

Fun climb, easy for .10a. Pro is reasonable. I used a #1, #2 and one small alien (very suspect behind loose flake)

Fun moves on postiive dikes -- some fun reach and balance. The bolt spacing really wakes you up. Maybe not worth placing gear before first bolt, but you'd better not fall there. The runouts seem to be on easier moves, but this is not sport climbing as I've come to know it.

good new route. I used a #1, a #2 and a yellow alien in addition to the bolts. Crux seems height dependent, as my shorter partner had trouble making a reach.

Really fun. The flakey crap down low is kinda jingus and it would be better if a bolt was there as the gear is a bit suspect, especially if you wipped onto it. However, despite that the rest of the route is really fun climbing on a very steep wall.
