Photo credit goes to Chris Christie for the beaut ...


North Star is the amazing golden corner across from the last pitches of Angel's Crest. Climb the lazer cut golden corner with increasing difficulty. Get your V on as the corner ends and spits you out onto small sidepulls and edges. Poor feet! Steep with plenty of air beneath you.


Located on the North side of the North Gulley of the Chief, facing Angel's Crest. Hike up to the 3rd summit and parallel the lip until a view of the corner is reached. Rappel off tree to bolted station to a ledge at the base of the Corner.


All natural protection from red Camalot to purple TCU and small to medium nuts. Triples in finger sizes.
