OW! Third pitch.

Yield to mining vehicle traffic MORE INFO >>>


If you like climbing chossy OW with your crampons on, then this is the route for you! The first pitch is pretty obvious and starts with a small roof and then follows a right-trending groove. The second pitch is short and traverses starting right and up a steep corner to a ledge below a huge, OW corner. The route from here is three more pitches and follows obvious, wide cracks to the top of the wall. All belays are off good trees, and on the top of the fourth pitch, we added two bolts for a belay. We rappelled off the same raps as Dirty Minds.


Walk up the Camp Bird Mine Rd. until the Poser's Lounge, and drop start down the the creek. Find a crossing, and meander through the woods to start of route. Solo up easy terrain to nice ledge below the first pitch.


Double set of cams to #3 cam, one #4 cam, a set of nuts, optional knife-blades and beaks. A 70 meter rope is nice.
