BETA PHOTO: Go climb this!

Description 

A lesser known and rarely climbed needles classic. This route has plenty of exposure, runouts, horn slinging, and a few small gear placements.

1. 90' 5.9; Scramble up to the base, start route on the E side following dihedrals and flakes. Belay at a large horn on a ledge. Single rack.

2. 190' 5.10c; Straight up the rib, climb through short crux at the first bolt. Follow bolts then make a hard right into the crack feature. Continue up arete passing a slopey ledge to the natural belay on top. A BD #2 and some #3s are nice to have for the anchor.

The 1/4" bolts are not looking so hot right now (4/21/12). Probably deserves an X rating until those get replaced.


Location 

Left/West side of Bartizan Wall. This is the prominent S facing rib just on the right side of a large grassy gully. Rap down the backside and into the grassy gully to the W. Rap is possible with one 60m rope.


Protection 

Single rack, RPs, 5 bolts, 2 pins, and lots of slings. Bring at least three 4' slings.
