Obtain the top of a large semi-detached flake at the start of the route by laybacking up the left side or by traversing in from the right. Continue up to the base of a small roof. Proceed through two roofs to a narrow seam (crux).


On the far right hand side of Mosaic Wall (close to the descent gully), find the large flake at the base of the route. Walk off to the right or lower/rappel from anchors up and to the left from the top of the narrow seam.


Standard trad rack (set of nuts, set of cams, slings). Leave the big stuff behind and you may want extras in the small to mid range.

I thought crux was right off the deck, laybacking. 5.9 and upper seam about 5.8 A neglected classic for the grade. lots of variety.

Add 1 each of the new BD #4 or #3 for the bouldery start, and #2(there are placements), would be added to the suggested rack. Cool Route.
