This description is for the first pitch only. This is a superb natural line of high quality sustained crack and edge climbing. There are just enough stances to keep it in the sub-5.12 range. Get on this one fresh.


At a left end of a lower cliff band between the waterfall and Spider's and Snakes Buttress. Find a left leaning crack/seam on a steep brown face. There a small roof with wedged block at head height. 12 feet up the seam forms a short right facing ramp.


Lots of tiny to finger size cams (hybrids useful) and small stoppers. The belay on the ledge usually has fixed gear but, the slings are often chewed. Bring a couple of medium cams and be prepared to leave something.

Just left a couple stainless cable hexes today -- they're bomber (plus I doubt the vermin will chew through these).
