  • Description 

    This is a run out friction climb which is totally unprotected until the initial (only!) bolt is reached after ~40 feet of 5.7-5.8 friction climbing. The first 2 bolt belay anchor is reached after another 40-50 feet of climbing. The second lead follows a diagonal, shallow water groove upwards to the looming flake where cams can be used to protect the final 5.8 moves around the left edge (liebacks) and the "summit." Rappel the route (2 rappels). Two ropes are needed.


    Location 

    This route begins about 15 feet left of the shallow dihedral of the Cow, Center route.


    Protection 

    A single bolt about 40 feet off the deck. Bolted belay anchors. Bring a rack with hand size and larger cams.
