Exciting climbing up a steep bolted face. One of the best on the wall, and a classic in the area!


Found on the Second Buttress, scramble up 5.5 from trail to the head wall, its the beautiful line to the right of the wall.


Bolts plus anchor.

A fun steep route. One of the earlier bolted steep lines in Kootenai. It really opened the door to that entire wall. First ascent I believe was in the summer of 1993.
