Follow a crack system to the top. The first half has some tricky moves in somewhat dirty rock. The dihedral in the upper half is unpleasantly loose.


Cirque of the Climbables has a wide formation at its right end, and then five narrow formations farther left. This climb is in the gully between the left two formations.

The lower part is surely loose and crumbly, but has now been groomed of foliage and some of the dirt, to allow you to see where to put pro as well as hands/feet. Patina gets more substantial after 40' or so. I found the upper wide crack surprisingly fun, and has a great stop on top to belay from. Not a total bomb anymore, but not great.
