2016 Seasonal Raptor Closure on the Diamond MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Just another 4 star lower wall classic free climb. This is essentially the free variation of Snow White. The original snow white takes the thin crack from the start of princely ambitions directly to the mini roof at the 3rd bolt.

This route has at least 4 different 5.11 sections in addition to the all points off 7 ft sideways dyno at the crux. If you are taller than 6'6", you may be able to reach past the dyno. Shorter people might find the dyno to be impossibly long.

If the dyno isn't your style, this route makes an almost as good 5.11d, A0. Highly recommended.

Location 

Take the trail up towards Rogers corner, but break right just before you reach that route. This will deposit you on a nice little shelf approximately 30 feet up and left of the start of princely ambitions. This route shares anchors with princely ambitions. Rappel to the starting shelf is possible with a 70m rope, but you cannot rappel all the way to the ground.

Protection 

Mostly bolted, but some gear is needed before the final bolt. Most will want to stick clip the first bolt.

I see where this thing starts but how does it end? Does it join up with Princely of just keep going straight up?

Greg, after the dyno head up and left on easy (runout-ish) ground to a bolt below a left facing corner. Go up the corner, which is rather tenuous and tricky. Bring a #1 for the pod. I feel that this is the most difficult part of the route despite the fact that I'm 5'8". It is quite different in character than the rest of the climb.

Also, I took a big whip on a #5 Micronut and am planning on going back for it, so please don't booty it anyone!
