A really fun route. Double crack, using the right side at the top out.


If you are standing back viewing this wall there is a face that is smooth with the columns all straight and tight forming thin cracks. Left of this are 3 broken columns leaning to the right. Alar is on the left side of the 1st leaning column on the right.


gear to 4", can't remember if there is an anchor.

This route was a lot of fun, very similar to Bridger or Little Known Wonder in the Royal Columns area but a little harder. There is a large bush growing in the lower part of the route that was not there when picture in the guidebook was taken. Its easier to exit the right crack, then top out the pillar on the left to reach anchors.
