Approach


Approach the base of this route the same way as approaching 'Snowball'.
This climb starts below a line of bolts on the left hand side of the wall.

Route Description

Pass over the roof (.11a) and clip bolt #4 before locating a sized medium "hole". Head past the hole and clip the #5 and final bolt before topping out on a large ledge (70'). Rappel or lower off this.

Essential Gear
