Glenn approaching the "keyhole" on Keyho...


Follow the thin crack, up to a large pod to the right. Continue up and angle back toward the left.
  • RCM&W #59, p.167.


Keyhole is the main route in the area, the top is located slightly north of the overlook. To reach the top walk around the overlook from the right and continue under the base of the overlook around some large boulders to a ledge. The ledge is the top of the keyhole face.


Nuts and cams. Mostly small stuff, nothing bigger than small hands is needed. For the top rope setup, webbing for slinging boulders and a small nut placement is all I could come up with.
