This route is a fun and burly adventure up a very clean corner. Use hand, fist and OW technique to work your way up to a short hand traverse into an alcove on top of the dihedral. Avoid going right at this point (lots of loose flakes to shower your belayer with) and ride the left finish to the end.


Hand and fist sizes up to 4 inches

This is a wild climb in a wild location. I think it's really good, but beware it's a pretty gnarly OW. Rated 10b in the old Barlett guide, Ha!
