The Milky Way

An alpine approach to fine slab climbing. About a 30 min hike/scramble south from Two Fingers Canyon. See Topo.
When the upper mouth of the slot canyon is reached, climb up a short awkward chimney at about 5.7. Then scramble up and left to the obvious upper slabs with the prominent white streak.
P1) Follow the milky way past four bolts and a hand size cam in a pocket to double anchors. 160' 5.8.
P2) From the belay move out left and after 40' the angle eases. Straight up easy climbing to double anchors. 200' 5.5R no pro.
From belay scramble up and right to the summit and great views. Rap the route.
About 30 mins south of Two Fingers canyon. See Topo
One 3" cam, Quick draws. Two 60m ropes
