Description:

Slightly right of the path from the parking lot, it's the straight up bolted route with the obvious roof up high. Flakes, underclings, thin edges, roof, bulge, slopers; it's all here. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars VERY fun, little scary

Tr'd or seconded a few times; then led. Bolt placement seems OK to me, but leader should be solid at the 10 grade; a fall at the bulge leaves you swinging free. Turning the bulge is 'easy' with the right holds; take you time to find 'em. Turning the roof can be brutal or elegant, depending on how you use your feet. I've done it both ways, but only been proud of one.

4 out of 5 stars sketchy clips

Poor bolt placements on this route. Or should I say not enough bolts. Potential for some serious falls while clipping runout bolts.
Still very fun, but you best be prepared.
