Description:

Amble up the super slabby panel, alternate between the left and right flakes until it widens out near the top. Do your best to avoid the z-clip. This route has tons of bolts.

3 out of 5 stars Where Do I Go?

The bolt line does not give you the best indication to go to the crack. Climbing the face would be hard and avoiding the crack would be contrived so there it is.

3 out of 5 stars Don't Z clip

Sharp, slabby, good warm up for minimal pump. Book says 5.9, but more like a 7+ if there is such a thing. Good for a newer leader breaking into 5.8 or 5.9.
