Located on a block of rock with a few bolts running up the middle of it. A high first bolt quickly becomes more unnerving as soon as you start feeling the first few greasy and polished holds. Go bum a stick clip from one of the many groups that are likely around you if you aren’t feeling stoked on that first bolt. The climbing eases up after the opening crux to a fairly unmemorable climb. This is a good example of a lower graded climb that gets more traffic than it should due to it’s location and ease of access.
