Description:

From Mtn Project: Start in an alcove with a shallow corner on the left with a scratchy bush growing out of it. Clip the first bolt (just right of the bush), then figure out how to climb past or over the foliage without getting entangled and scratched. Please do not remove the shrub - it was there first, and it is possible (albeit inobvious) to climb past it without getting thrashed. Continue on up the arete and face above to a ledge on top. The anchors are on the wall above the ledge, and are easily accessible from the top. Addendum: Beware, there is a block that shifts a half inch just below the 4th bolt. Addendum: you can go up the crack right of the 1st bolt, and traverse at the 2nd bolts for an 8+. KV>> Mtn Project has it as 5.10a, yet new guide book is at 5.9 (I agree with the latter).

3 out of 5 stars Fun Sport Climb

After a long day of only trad, it was a relief to get on fixed protection again. This route may have seemed easier because I didn't have to worry about gear not holding... and it wasn't in a crack. A very fun route with a few tricky moves.
