Description:

This fun, solid 5.8 is found on the upper, wider section of the approach path, just before the path opens into a much bigger area. It is to the left of Ne Plus Ultra, which is to the left of Fortis, which is to the left of Ascent Gully (the messy looking 5.4ish scramble to the top of the cliff). It uses 5 bolts going thru overhanging horizontal cracks at to the left of the kentucky-shaped roof. Bring TCU's to use between 3d and 4th bolt if not solid at this grade. It connects to the anchor on the left, not the right which is for Ne Plus Ultra.

3 out of 5 stars Easy to do wet

First half of the climb is very easy class 5 until 3rd bolt. Double wrap ring anchor. It had just rained and the climb was wet but juggy enough to not really matter.

4 out of 5 stars Great warm up for this area

Great jugs are on this one. Do it first, dont save it for the end or the other pumpy routes will ruin it for you.
