Climbing restricted due to tourist safety MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route is the left of the three beautiful 5.10 cracks at the end of the trail. Down past Isaiah. Climb up easy slab to the base of the finger crack i.e. the business. Pull through the crux on good pro to easy climbing under the roof. Traverse the roof right to the hand crack and pull the 5.9? roof and jam the crack to the top.
This was my first 5.10 red point, and is a good first 5.10 thats safe!


Location 

Hike west along the base of the climbs passing Isaiah, to an almost impassable area around a corner and look up at the three beautiful cracks!


Protection 

Smaller Cams for short crux and some hand sized for the top.

I thought the left roof was supposed to be 10a.. Aw what do I know I'm too much of a pussy to go that way! I traversed off right. ppbbpbpt.

Left roof is not nearly as bad as it looks.
Once you get up there some big feet show up.

The left roof is more like 5.10. protects well with some hand size pieces. Worth doing.
