This is an exciting arÍte climb, with fun moves on great rock. It's scary, but you wouldn't get hurt if you fell at the crux.


on the section of the east face thatís close to the road


three bolts plus a few pieces of gear

"you wouldn't get hurt if you fell at the crux" ...I think you probably would and you would need to clean out your pants!

This is right at the edge between PG/R and the crux moves are at the most runnout part, Herb Laeger was some kind of bold dude. The warning lights were flashing and sirens were howling in my mind leading this one.

Best route on the rock, when combined with Uncle Fester in one pitch this is 3/5 stars.
