Bolts: 10 (report bad bolts/anchors)

Continuing along the trail takes you to a pair of long lines just right of a crack and before the trail heads downhill to a flat spot. This begins either in the crack or on the face beneath the bolt. Cruxy movement leads through enough rests to keep the grade moderate. An excellent roof pull guards the chains.
Moves: Balancy
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry

This climb feels like it goes on for, at least, 150 feet. There are many rests and many battles to get to the chains.

It took me a couple minutes to figure out which routes these were because I was looking for 5.11's. Go figure...

I have a topo from Kipp that had them both at 11b I think. I LOL when I saw the grades online.

This route is really fun. Don’t let the start of this keep you from getting on it. You don’t actually have to use any of the wet green rock.
