This route is on the Leftovers, South Face, on the right side of the formation. The distinguishing feature is a couple of bushes in the crack, perhaps 50 feet off the deck.

Start on a clean, right-slanting crack right off the trail. These are the hardest moves, and can be well protected with a 4.5 cam. Move left, then up through some bushes in a very nice, consistent 5.8 crack. 100 feet.

P2 -- when the crack ends, the terrain gets easier (5.5) and moves right to the top. You could possibly downclimb from the top, but it looks dicey. An alternative is to cut hard left and traverse 30 or so feet, then walk off heading north.

This route is better than it looks from the ground.


Standard Rack with doubles on hand sizes.A 4.5 camalot protected the bottom moves.
