A rampy, smooth start leads to near perfect -to absolutely perfect- crystal pinching, side pulling and crystal bound crimps.

Has finicky, thought-provoking, thin cruxes and many fun moves that make you quickly realize that you are quite a few feet above your last bolt.

Bolts become hidden the closer you get to the summit. Prepare for a spicy lead where having a good, clear lead head helps.

Those that did not get to the first bolt on Patience need not apply. Those that barely made it up Patience should consider fixing a top rope.

However, with that warning out of the way, climbers of all levels will be guaranteed to have the time of their lives. Just make sure that you can maintain an attitude that allows for your body to keep going with a lasting, enduring tenacity all the way to the anchors.


This is the route that obviously has more bolts and is a touch closer to the road.


Bring at least 6 quick draws. Chain anchors. A 60 meter rope will get you up and down.
