Another pumper complete with a bulge at the 4th bolt which has the strong possibility of motivating a take. Hang on if you can to reach the giant hueco at the last bolt where reprieve can be found.

Second route from the right of the ledge. Climbs to large hueco.

The bulge at 4th bolt was a bit nerve wracking, because I was worried that the hold would break, but not that hard. After getting into the hueco and being assured that all the difficulties were over already, I had a surprisingly hard time between the last bolt and the anchors, grabbing some lichen covered not-holds that nobody else has considered necessary. Cool route. The holds are all there, but it is not straightforward, takes some figuring out.

Fun route, all there and well bolted. Will get better with some traffic.

Terrible route. Dirty, chossy bottom and that 4th bolt is in a ridiculous place.

Agreed about the 4th bolt. Funny that it was originally placed 10" higher.

Wicked fun route! Thought the bolting was fine, I'm 5' 1" and didn't have too hard of a time clipping. It's been cleaned off a ton though since May of last year.

The route has cleaned up quite well, definitely worth getting on.
