Start on the first bolt of Old English and head straight up and right through easy terrain. Make your way to a small roof and a sit down ledge. From here head up into the overhanging headwall passing several boulder problems and good rests. Save some juice for the devious pocket crux up high.

Best of the three in my opinion. Last bolt is wet after a day of rain but still climbable

It was wet going to the chains, and the crux was extra fun. Mono was dry, but left and right of it were wet. I ended not using the mono as a I feared for my finger if my other hand slipped. Found a decent sequence to the right, but it involved a wet crimp and a mud filled positive edge. The line is fun and can't wait to try the crux again when it is dry. Ian

Starting on the ledge above the first bolt by walking right and traversing the ledge adds a star and knocks off the shitty start. -Scott

Amazing lines! Skip the dirty slabs and come climb these. I'm not sure what the start used to be like but it's just fine now (shared w/ Old English).
