If you find yourself in the Illilouette looking for a nice moderate line, without time for a multipitch push up Starr King, this is just the thing.

A slabby left-facing dihedral has a series of cracks at its back. Hop on, it's better than it looks from the ground! We thought it might go at 5.7 if cleaned up, but did 5.8ish moves to avoid loose blocks and vegetation. It takes a repertoire of moderate climbing moves to top out, very fun.

If you know of a prior history of this line let me know and I'l update the description. I would be surprised to find nobody had climbed it yet, but for its long approach, and the fact most climbs recorded here are much more advanced than this.

Also check out the 30 foot vertical splitter hand crack, just right of the start of this one.


Just left of the lowest southwest point of Dome Baez, with Walkabout around the corner to the right. Looks for the obvious path of least resistance up the face.

Walk around left from the top of the climb, passing the single pitch 5.12d and 5.11d routes, then Diamonds and Rust, to scramble back to ground.


Trad rack.
