Check NPS for Closures


The route follows the only continuous crack up a right facing dihedral. Neat moves of many size jams from tips to fists. Some stemming and liebacking. Scary moves protected by mariginal gear on the upper incipient runout cracks.


The third route encountered as you approach from the south. Splitter wide appearing crack that runs bottom to top. Enters a right facing dihedral about 40' up.
