Description:

Shares face with "Grandpa's Belay", to left edge. Many block ledges to start, then thins fast to 5.7 to go around blank patch to left, or right onto "Grandpa's Belay". Small roof overhang with flake crack at center top is 5.9 (or more to right of flake) so go around to left to top out.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

This whole area is good but in the summer time groups like to bring multiple ropes and take up the whole wall

3 out of 5 stars Not hard

Last climb of the day. Gets harder on the face and at the top.

4 out of 5 stars The bulge is its own climb, imo.

Much disagreement about rating. I'm sticking with 5.7 for the usual route, finishing around the arete to the left of the edge ledge. I'm saying 5.8 for the bulge, now that I've done it--which I definitely could not manage before while doing other 5.7's.

IMO those downgrading this climb don't need to be on it, except briefly for the bulge pull. So let's see them do the smooth right top face, hmmm?

4 out of 5 stars Good Warm Up

Awesome route but the hollow flake below the bulge sounds hollow.
