Breaking above the trees on the FA.


The hardest move is getting off the ground. While nothing is that difficult afterward, the climb is interesting, tall, and worth a run. It needs better cleaning.
P1: Move up (crux) to an awkward stance below a right-facing flake/crack. Climb crack to easier terrain, stepping over a narrow chimney, then belay on the ledge.
P2: Climb face via intermittent cracks up to a brushy ledge right of a spruce tree. Climb the vertical crack to the top of the cliff.


On a boulder pedestal near the outside edge of the large right-facing corner comprising the left side of the Amphitheatre. This is about 30' right of Amnesia Chasm.


Standard trad rack. Micro-cams (C3s) needed to protect the initial moves.
There is a fixed rappel anchor 40' climber's right from the top-out, which accesses the anchors of Amphitheatre Crack (i.e., two rappels needed).
