Description:

A nice cruise that starts in the middle of the wall past two bolts to a ledge (use small tcu), then traverses right to a bolt line heading up and right.

Descent Options:

Descent requires a 60m rope to get to the base. A 50m rope will only get you to the ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Great

Fun route. Bolts are all 1/4 buttonheads, some are spinners. Anchor is solid.

4 out of 5 stars Nice

Enjoyable route. Well protected and no need for trad gear. The 60m rope is definitely necessary.

Side note: We were surprised how far you need to hike up the talus slope before getting to the crag.

3 out of 5 stars Good name for a route

Thin start to a nice upper face. Good climbing, but not varied enough to really keep it interesting. I'd do it again, but doing the second pitch to the top would make this very worthwhile. No TCU needed. This is a sport route (& perfectly safe w/o additional pro).

4 out of 5 stars smooth

first 30' gets you pumped. Sustained 5.8 but has quite a bunch of tricky moves. Would place this more as a 5.9
