Description 

Great holds, and very fun to climb. The offwidth is a great place to pratice your body jam. Be careful not to get stuck in the rock.

Per Tony B: You can link Dead Boy to Osiris or just add some length on independent pitches. The rock is pretty good and some pro is available here and there, but not always right where you'd want it.

Eds. This combination of submissions was done to reduce duplication in the database.


Location 

This is the furthest route right of the Pages Wall. This is the fattest crack on the wall.

Per Tony B: Start from the Dead Boy anchors and head up onto the arete on the right.... Continue up cracks and horns to climb the right side of the arete for 60+ meters over the belay bolts to a cord-on-horn rap station. Belay on good gear to the right, then rap to the ground in 4 single raps. Double rope raps will only result in stuck ropes.


Protection 

Use stoppers and cams from #1 to #4. This will lead up to a two bolt anchor to the left of the route.

Per Tony B: Take long slings and enough pro to protect proportional to the length of pitches.... If running first 2 pitches together for 65m from ground up below Dead Boy, you need a double rack.... If pitching out into 3 pitches, a single rack should do.

A 70m rope makes the raps listed possible.

OK climbing on pretty good rock. The good face holds to the right of the wide climbing make it mellow. There are a few plcements of a sling on a flake and a few stoppers back in a flake in teh wide crack that make it an OK lead with nothing wide. Still heads-up, but reasonable for advanced climbers.

This climb can continue... and originally did!
