Description 

A short climb, but some interesting climbing...
Just around the corner right from the approach trail to Left Flank, there is a short climb on some steep rock. Climb up off-angle pockets for the crux of this one past a total of four bolts to the anchor.
I believe this climb was named after a local preacher in the early 90's.


Location 

Left Flank, just right of the approach trail.


Protection 

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Named for a southern radio evangelist I think. Not necessarily local.

Don't fall clipping ... this rock is rough and sharp. I also thought the bolts were a little far from the 5.9 climbing on the arete. Wasn't a big fan.

Fun Climb with a hard start. Climbing on the arete is the actual route but you are sometimes pretty far from the clips.

The first bolt felt like v1, maybe because it was wet. The rest felt like easy 5.8 with safe clips despite all of the moisture.
