Route Description

This route starts with a small traverse left across a sizable drop-off below the first bolt. Once the first bolt is reached climb straight up the juggy slightly overhanging face. After 12 meters say good by to the large buckets and continue up the steep face. The face has few features but the sharp edgy limestone gives excellent traction. This route is a virtual bolt ladder. Though only 30 meters it has some 12-14 bolts. Many can be skipped or back-cleaned depending on your comfort level. From the bottom you can not see the top of the route. There is a nice chain anchor at the top.

Essential Gear

12-14 quickdraws.
