When the approach trail meets the cliff walk right and around the corner from the main wall to locate a pair of lines right of a sharp arete. This is the rightmost line. Negotiate a slightly dirty start to gain the face which begins with technical thin climbing and leads to larger holds on steeper terrain.

True to its name, bottom bit is often wet but still climbable. Really nice if you catch 'er dry.

Fun line. Put drop in steel biners at the chains on it. Please use your own draws at the chains for top roping or multiple ascents. Thanks

Just a question, why does every, (if any route) need leavers at the anchors? When did cleaning become so hard to do?
Anonymous said on January 2nd, 2015
Not every line gets them. But idealy, routes need either a quick link or steel biner to prevent wear on the chain. There is about $1.50 difference between them. I decided to go big and drop the extra $3 for leavers. However, if so inclined please feel free to put quick links on it and return the biners to me. Thanks. Ian

These days people near steal the biners and leave nothing to replace them
