Description:

Follow the very shallow left facing corner system just to the left of the sport line on the green slab. A small cam can be placed near the top of the corner system. Easy climbing. At the top of the corner system, head up and trend left to reach the first bolt. Some gear can be placed in horizontals before reaching the bolt. Pass 3 bolts and approach the shuts from the left side. Nice easy route.

5 out of 5 stars Fun

This route is great but a bit run out in the lower section. Placements are there but not very solid. Its easy climbing when the gear is no good so just take it easy. Can link this route with the second half of the piton crack from the shuts.

4 out of 5 stars Casual "rest" climb

1st time on this one, nice climb. A little far for my taste to the first gear placement, but as mentioned the climbing is easy at probably 5.6 so if you keep your cool and nothing unforeseen happens you should be OK. Decent gear after that and the bolts make for a well protected finish, staying directly on the bolt line without using the larger features/corners to the left and right help to keep this one closer to 5.7 if so desired.
