Passing bolt 1, Tobin on the send.


Pitch 1--Traverse (protected by a 1.5 cam) right to the first bolt. Continue up the shallow dihedral passing a second bolt. Place a gold Camalot and a red Alien then run it out to a fixed pin located at the top of the dihedral. Lean out left and clip the bolt and climb over the bulge (crux) to chain anchors under the roof (5.11a).

Pitch 2--Pull the roof just right of the chain anchor (5.12b/c) and continue 25' to chains (bolts).

Rap from there with one rope (85') or keep climbing a 3rd pitch through loose rock 70' (5.10a).


20' right of Cryogenics.


Bolts, #1.5 cam, gold Camalot, red Alien, chain anchors.

The first ascent party did pitch two with out a single bolt! The bolts on the second pitch should be removed, show a little respect!

The first pitch is very fun. A little footwork moving past bolt 1 then great holds all the way to a couple pumpy moves over the bulge. One of my favorite pitches on the Pass.
