Description:

Short, bouldery, but worthwhile route inside the cave. Do moderate, but awkward moves past the overhanging section. After three clips it turns to a roof with powerful, improbable-looking moves. Pull the lip to the 'anchor' (single bolt). You should not lower from the anchor to clean. Its best to not clip the anchor, take the short fall to the next bolt below, and lower. Then to clean the draws, TR the route and lower from the fixed biner on the last bolt before the 'anchor' (always there for this purpose, so don't take it!). You don't want to clip the anchor and downclean, your rope would be making a very severe bend over sharp rock. Be careful, and I disclaim any sketchiness or incidents resulting from lowering off a single non-locking biner. But it seems like the best way

3 out of 5 stars Finally sent

Finally sent after years of attempts. Not that its a coveted 4-star route or anything, its just a fun route to play on in the rain, since most of the route is always dry. Also a good route to just do some quick burns on, at the end of the day since its such a short problem.
