Description:

Single pitch sport route. Huge pocket holds, on really gritty volcanic rock(great feet!) Boulder start is the crux of the climb, with 1st bolt about 15 feet off the deck, you might want to stick clip this one if you dont feel like risking a fall. After that, its just a cruise. Be aware of sharp edges on pockets(I found out the hard way). If you would rather toprope it, there is an easy scramble on your left, that will take you right up. Bolted anchor right at top. Fun climb.

4 out of 5 stars Jug fest...until the end

Crux at the last two bolts before anchor.

Also, forgot two BD posiwire quickdraws at the top at end of day. If you grabbed them, it would be great to get them back. Beers are on me :-)

3 out of 5 stars 5.9?

No way the moves past the jugs were 5.9. At least not the way we did it. The guide book we had said it was 5.11b. Maybe .10d is a happy compromise? Whatever, we found ratings in this whole area to be all over the map.
