Choose the fun 5.8 original start or the long continuous 11a direct start. From the shared anchor continue up a right facing corner that narrows down to tips. As the corner ends figure out the crux face climbing moves past the first bolt. Traverse, right, past a second bolt that leads to another thin crack with interesting moves to the anchor. A semi run out third pitch(5.9) gets you to the very interesting forth. Still a bit dirty, interesting features lead to then over what, from below, seems like an improbable roof. A runout though easy final 5.7/8 pitch ends at a cool summit ledge.


Located a ways left of Eagles Eyrie and just right of an unknown 5.11 route shown in the Reid guide


Pro to a #3 Camalot with extras from .1 to .75 Camalots. Also stoppers with extras in the small to med size are nice. Bring lots of draws if doing the 11a direct start, a full 60m pitch.

The original 5.8 start takes the finger crack through the roof. The 11a direct start leads to, then stays right of, the small diagonaling right facing corner.

Get down with a 70 or two ropes?

2 ropes to get down. If you only do P1 you can get down with 1 rope.
Last time on it P1 and 2 were very clean but with the little traffic most routes at P-Line get some veg may have grown. The first 2 pitches are awesome and doing the whole route although not the same quality as the first 2 is a great little adventure. Would love to hear if you do it. Both starts are good.

Really great first two pitches of clean climbing - both solid for the grades. Bring nuts for P2. We were running out of light and stopped at the top of P4, which was already more crispy adventure climbing compared too the first pitches.

Nice David, about time someone got on that route. And yes the upper pitches do not compare to the first 2... fun adventure above non the less.
