This is almost as good as Snowblind but not as natural of a line. The rock quality on this one is also a little better than the rest of the formation.

Climb an low-angle right facing flake to a ledge. Make some easy but unprotected moves (or poorly protected, if you put gear in the flake) to the first bolt and then continue up and left. The traverse takes you near a steep outside corner/drop-off which makes the climbing feel exposed. Continue up and pass by a featured overlap/undercling which is passed to the right.


Starts about 100 feet left of Snowblind.


Bolts and optional gear to 1" for the start. Bolted anchor rappel.

Yesterday we upgraded the first two and the last bolts, all of which were previously 1/4".
