First Ascent


Climb the left facing corner to a pin (5.8R) and up onto the slab to the roof. Climb the crack through the roof (crux G) to a left slanting splitter hand crack. Follow the crack to its end. Turn back right and climb the right trending rail to the birch tree(optional belay). Climb up and left from tree to a short right facing corner onto a block and up right facing layback flakes to a arete with thin crack to top 110'. Descent: From the top of the arete walk skiers right and down 10' to brown rap slings on tree. 60 meter rope required 100' abseil.


Start approx 80' right around the corner
of Raindance at the obvious left facing corner under the roof.

The first 30 feet of this climb have unfortunately become overgrown (already) with moss due to lack of climbing and attention. The roof and climbing above are quality but the bottom half doesn't stay dry long enough. If the bottom R section was bolted it might increase the traffic and attraction to the climb.
