Kenton making the thin crux moves onto the slab.


Begin up an interesting section on fractured rhyolite to a small ledge. Move up and left through a large scooped-out dish, then get some fun exposure as you make your way out and around the edge onto the face (crux). Continue up the positive face until the rock turns vertical; find the buckets and clip the chains.

Small (often loose) malformed rhyolite crimps create a thin slab crux that forces you to use your feet. The route is moderately sustained (after the 2nd bolt I think) As long as you take it slow and steady a route I believe anyone can do as long as they have the footwork and the patients. And yeah, there is an enormous jug at the finish that is so rewarding/relieving/pleasant to slap and clip from. can't comment on the condition of the anchors, don't remember.

It also looked like one of the holds had actually been glued on. I don't have much experience with this matter but I did notice as I was going up I think second from the last clip. A loose rock that looked like nothing should have been holding it there, but it stayed.

Gets thin around the 4th bolt. Seems to be rated a bit hard. Has a hold broken loose? Fun climb. Huge jug at the end is so delightful.

No holds have broken, at least in the last year or two. This is a really good climb, and it deserves more traffic than it gets.

I climbed this last night for the first time in three years. I don't know why I don't climb it more often; It's pretty damn fun. And all the holds are as I remember them. I don't think anything has broken off.
The aluminum leaver biners I put up there three years ago are still there. The left one could probably stand to be replaced.
