This is another "must do". This climb takes the steeper, direct route to the anchors shared with "Braggin about Jesus". Start up the very deceptive slab, pull over a small roof and continue straight up to the anchors. Perfect rock, sustained, fun.

Double rope rap required !!


8-10 bolts optional small cam at the roof.


This is the left of the 2 bolt routes at the N end of the E face of Blair III.

FYI, a double rope rap isn't required if you have a 70m rope.

A 60m gets you down as well. Trend right as you rappel and get to a nice ledge that is 10-15ft higher than the ground directly below the chains.
