Description:

There is approximately 15 feet between the last bolt and the chains. However most of the area above the last bolt is reasonably easy. The last difficult move on the route is the traverse five feet above the last bolt. You can protect the final moves with a #2 Camalot. The route is to the right of Nurseís hook which is to the right of Cactus Garden. Follow the crack up to the over hang. Pull yourself around the left side of the overhang and continue up about seven feet. Next you will need to reverse to the left. Then finish the climb to the top. When youíre leading this route you will have to stay on the left crack due to the placement of the bolts. This route is rated as a 5.8+.

5 out of 5 stars Enjoyable route

Slightly uncomfortable Crux at the boulder overhang. Went up and right at first, then realized the route was to the left. After I corrected that mistake everything was pretty breezy.

My first over hang, of course you can just split past it but it's worth the effort.... Solid 9
