Description 

Climbs up one of the prettiest walls in blue mounds with purple rock and bright yellow lichen. The crux is low. It's a shame this climb isn't longer or it would be an area classic.


Location 

On the south side of the buttress (walk partway up the gully to access). Climbs the obvious crack with yellow lichen all over the wall.


Protection 

Standard blue mounds, long webbing for TR. As for the lead I didn't really pay attention (was on TR), there are definitely placements low but I don't remember up high.

The gear was despairate. Felt harder than the rating. Used small stuff, nothing bigger than a .5, also bring some small stoppers.

Hey Taylor, I think we were right around the corner from you guys when you led this last spring. Must have been hard to stop and find stances to place gear on this thing, nice work!
