Description 

One of the best moderate multi-pitch routes at Index.

P1: 11a. Start in an often wet left-facing flake-dihedral system, then move onto the face.

P2: 10d. Face moves to a corner.

P3: 10d. Short pitch to a ledge at the base of the long final dihedral. Crux face moves to easier moves over a roof.

P4: 10d. Follow the thin dihedral.

Use two ropes to rappel.

Small wires to wide-hand sized cams.

Looks like there is a tree growing in the final dihedral. Anyone does this recently? I remember running into some black widow spiders on this final pitch back in 2006.

As of spring '15 there do not appear to be any black widows; the tree, however, remains. This is a technical, wild, and improbable route that deserves to get climbed more. The line appears freshly bolted and one 70m rope gets you down.
