Description 

On the Dome's west side is an obvious, low-angled, wide crack. Look for a shallow, right-facing corner. Climb the wide crack to the summit or, downclimb from an obvious ledge above the technical difficulties. This is the same ledge the other routes walk off. Downclimb slabs on the west side or go down a gully.


Protection 

Standard rack, with a few wider pieces for the wide section.

The small pro on standard rack is not going to do much for you, this route is all crack with mostly moderate to large pro opportunities. You could even use some small Bros if you have them, or large cams. Reaching deeper into crack seems only option to place midsize pro, otherwise you'll want BIG stuff or runout.

This is a fun route that doesn't see much traffic.

If this route is near what you lead comfortably, bring 4-5 pieces of at least 3in. Even a 70m rope will put you in a position to build a belay with large gear.
