Description 

This fun route is a great way to finish up a day of cragging. It sees less action than the routes around the corner.

The first pitch is varied and ends at a bolted rap station on the edge of a brushy terrace.

The second pitch climbs the beautiful open book above. Mostly hands with some variety including a fist/OW section. It ends at a bolted rap station.

Rap the route with two 60m ropes.


Location 

From the paved pullout just up canyon from Big Bend follow a faint trail up to the cliff. The second pitch dihedral is a good landmark.


Protection 

Doubles to #1 C4, triples of #2 and #3, one #4.

Beautiful second pitch, less aesthetic first pitch, but some fun moves. Not much of a trail to the base of this route, but the route itself is clear of loose rock.

I'd suggest a minimum of 4 #2s and 4 #3s for this route. It is a 100+ foot pitch and you'll place the #4 early on (a #5 is optional and a 2nd #4 wouldn't hurt if you are thin in the 2-3" cam size). With 4 X #2,#3 I had placements spaced a bit further out than I would have liked. Still, it went and the gear was good, so perhaps I'm just scared. I would say the suggested rack would get most folks a little nervous.

Great way to end the day at Big Bend.

One 70m will get you down in two raps.
