L to R R to L Alpha
A long and amazing technical face climb. Thin edges and sidepulls will test your balance and footwork. An exciting and difficult crux will definitely test your route reading skills. A must do for the face climbing connoisseur. Many of the old bolts remain, but a few have been updated in the important places.
At the Y-intersection near the top of the hanging chain approach trail, make a left and continue up the hill for 40'. You will be at the base of Talk This Way and the large leaning block that creates two OW dihedrals. Go right for another 40' and on the right side of the dihedral just before the waterfall is the climb. It is easy to spot most of the bolts from the ground. Rap with 2 60m ropes to the ground.
Finger sized cams to .5. Lots of draws with a few longer ones to keep it running smooth. The last two old bolts can be backed up with gear. Two bolt anchor at the top with carabiners for rappel.
