  • Description 

    One of the first routes you come to when you drop right from the main trail to summit. A short crack goes up, then traverses hard right for a bit, then goes straight up to the overlook. Reknowned rock explorer Charles Ivey reports he belayed Shane on FA. Brushy near the top. There is an old underground guide that names this line Bittersweet Retreat, so we will go with that.


    Location 

    first good crack at left end of wall below overlook.
