Description:

The column climbing up from the trail, where it arches away from Castaways and loops downhill to rejoin the cliff base. DO NOT BLOCK THE TRAIL TO BELAY. Stay on trail when shooting pictures or someone who worked really hard to restore the area might beat you to within an inch of your worthless life. Climb up through a highball boulder problem to clip first bolt. Move up and through clip bolt 2, then pull slot and move L passing other bolts to move straight up to the roof. Clip bolt at lip and finish shrough roof to face/crack moves and anchors.

Descent Options:

Lower/rap from anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Great line

Don't wait too late in the day for this pumpy-headfest. All the bolts are there, even the one you can't see while panting under the roof. Onsight with 2 falls = hangdoggy.

4 out of 5 stars Pumpy

Somewhat heady at the second bolt, especially when hanging the draws. I wouldn't want to fall there, although the climbing isn't that hard.

The rest of the climb is pumpy, with a couple of tough moves. The crux seems to be the pump.

4 out of 5 stars Pumpy!

This is a great route. Tough little bulge down low. Don't hang around too long under the roof or you might not make it.

4 out of 5 stars Solid 10, maybe 10+

Second bolt is a bit run out, screw up this clip and you will deck for sure.
