  • Description 

    You will be hard pressed to find anyone who has done this route as well as find anyone willing to give it a go. This is an adventure route. Probably the dirtiest climb I have ever done but the climbing is classic and well protectable. There are two starts. The right hand start has been cleaned up a bit and most of the loose rock is now gone. After a long pitch it ends at 2 new 3/8" bolts with chains. The left starts out nice, although vegetated, but the rock quality gets very poor at the small roof. There is a three pin anchor below the roof in questionable rock which I recommend you climb past and continue to the same bolted station as the right variation.


    This is the giant left facing corner immediately left of Stone Quest.


    micro cams to a #6 Camalot and I highly recommend a brush, which I did not have.
