Description:

To the right of Karl's Crack. Climb wandering route past 4 (?) bolts. Feels more like .10d or .11a? Height dependent. Route USED to be 10a. That was before various holds broke.

3 out of 5 stars Super Fun

The cruxes are bolted except for the mantle which is right off the ground. The rest is fun, adventure climbing. Bring small gear up to BD .5 and 1 BD #3 and some draws.

Route has changed over the years. I'd call it 10c currently.

Im a tall guy, and I say this climb went at .10d for me. Most likely .11+ for shorter folk. Fun hard moves non the less. Ive seen better bolting.

My first outdoor climb. It took me forever. Right below the flake it is practically bare. This is near the beginning of the route. I cheated by using the bolt for a foothold. My belayer was very patient with me. :)
I want to do it again.
