Few larger nuts and a 1 & 2 camalot. Maybe can use Aliens in the thin crack but didn't have any. Two

Up high, the friction is more difficult than it looks and protection in the center is hard to come by. You can protect in the corner with cams. Climb the small crack running up the middle of the slab until you get to the roof. You can jam the corner if you get in trouble. Jam across under the roof, moving left. Move just past the roof and head up. It is pretty easy from there. I didn't trust the bolts. None looked particularly solid.

2 out of 5 stars so so

the route is fairly fun at the bottom if it were not for the crack being hard to protect. bring many sized nuts and some mid sized - large cams for the roof area. i ended up having to bail off on of the bolts after running out of gear... good climb to practice good placements, just don't fall. there are two bolts on the lower face and also two up in the roof area just like the guide book shows

The climb was tough and the bolts bad. My 2nd probalby couldn't have cleaned so I would have had to clean off poor gear. I downclimbed and cleaned. Not pretty or fun. Wouldn't do this climb again.
