Mike working into the crux


5.8 your way up the overhanging corner then out to the right(campus or crimp with heel-hooks) get into a sitting rest that is almost no-hands, then use the big undercling and crimps to continue up the corner making one stopper move tat with the right beta becomes easier. There is a jug above the anchor to make the clip...for the brave.

Cater rated this one 5.11a, but it is harder.


Start on Big overhanging corner, continue up to bolt out right then follow right bolt line to 2nd set of anchors from the arete


3 bolts to Anchors.
Up until recently these bolts regualarly lost their hangers and nuts. Recently (August 2007) Jim Taylor replaced them with some glue-ins that may look weak(some say they look like paperclips or staples), but they are much, much stronger than the rock around them.

There's a small wasps nest in a jug near the anchor, I was on this mid-september, and almost grabbed the thing accidentally. As it gets colder someone might consider knocking the thing down.

Such a wicked good route! I would highly suggest following the crack to the right most anchors. It's the natural line, it makes for a much better climb!

If you don't climb this route, you hate America...and your mom. climb this route.
