Description:

Steep and fun .11a. Well bolted and clean falls. The route's been sent about 1 bazillion times, so hop on it and enjoy the pump if you're looking to break into .11's or love the warm-up if you're ready to work the harder, neighboring routes. See Inland Northwest Rockclimbs by Marty Bland or www.inlandnwclimb.homestead.com/inlandnwclimb.html

Descent Options:

Locals usually keep the chains on this route stocked w/ steel biners for lower offs.

1 out of 5 stars Went flying off...

bottom section before first bolt when rock was wet and sandy. Fell back first into the soft sand. Scared my wife but she started cracking up when she realized I was okay. Crummy route but a decent warmup.
