Junior's Last Laugh
|344 page views|
An obscure route on the upper parts of the East Face, this route is actually fun, punching through the left side of the big roof above the 2nd belay of Hidden Crack. Because it's only been climbed a few times, the upper slab is somewhat licheny, but would clean up with use. If you're up there, climb it!
From the tree ledge, climb a flake system that leads up to the left side of the big roof. Make a few moves up steeper rock, then move and a little right to get onto the slab above. Tiptoe up the lichen-covered and unprotected (but easy) slab to the two-bolt anchor at the end of the 3rd pitch of Hidden Crack.
Starts from the right side of the tree ledge that is at the end of the 2nd pitches of Hidden Crack and Rip van Winkle. Locate the large roof between the third pitches of those two routes (just to the left of the 3rd pitch of Hidden Crack). This route climbs the left side of the roof.
