  • Description 

    Cruise up right to follow a prow over a ledge and pass an overhang on its right side. Move out right to a big tree. Two bolt anchor below large roof system.

    After a second time climbing it, I'm adding stars to this route. The climbing is fun, the exposure is great, there's bolts in between gear placements, and the view from up top is fantastic. Along with Suprise, this is a classic Mount Minsi route.


    About 100 feet right of Suprise. Arete just before a corner.


    Has a few bolts but can take some gear as well.

    I've been wondering what this climb was. Thanks Mike!

    11/2/2014 - The old quick links in the bolted anchors were replaced with a wire-gate biner w/ an aluminium ring and a new quick link with an aluminum ring. Aluminum Rap Rings should be replaced by the next party going up, if possible.
