Red x's are the pins


Start on the bottom right next to zee crack,climb the slab bottom to a nice ledge,then up the face or arete,fun variety of moves.A very serious lead even if the gear holds,considering the ledge distance(R/X)

I have left the grade to be subjective and name unknown,until proper information is given from previous ascents.There are some small copperheads/old stoppers and fixed pins in various places that give confirmation of early ascents.


On the right side of laddins crack,around the corner from Zee Crack.To the left of the wide chimney/ow.


3 draws(if you are adventurous on old pins,either way leading this in any form is adventurous)

A .5-#1 camalot or stopper sizes for the ledge to back up the old pin
1&2 RP's
A skinny dyneema sling(OK/questionable flake that can be slung as pro if weighted down with a heavy locker)

This is one of my favorites at laddin's although I've gone using that arete with the left hand. Maybe in the 5.10+ range. Haven't led it yet though, still trying to figure out better pro because those pitons are not the sweetest.
