Description:

The ground in front of the bluff has settled 2 to 3 feet providing a good bouldering moves over an overhang to start this route. (giving the rating a +) Lieback (crux) is just past the overhang. Once past the crux it is 5.6 to 5.7 to the top.

4 out of 5 stars ascent note

Went out and did this with my roomate one afternoon. My first so ill trad lead. It was a good intro to placing gear down here. Date is a guess. The tempura tour traverse goes left after the bolt and is highly recommended.

3 out of 5 stars very runout

Hard & strenouous trying to slot the best nut at the bottom. I was particularly nervous, because I didnt think that many good nut placements were up ahead, so I had to place one that I might have to rely upon solely. Scary & way runtout from there to the bolt. I got a marginal piece in before the runout & then ran it out past the bolt. Way fun.
