Just past the crux.

  • Description 

    This is the bolted face just right of Lifestream. The climbing is "interesting" and fairly sustained. To access this climb, either climb the first pitch of Lifestream, or it is possible to scramble up to this ledge system via a loose 5th class scramble 100 yards uphill (not bad in approach shoes). Getting to the first bolt is heads up, but if you have any business on this route, it will not be an issue. The crux is around the 4th (?) bolt, and the rest is great face climbing. Either step right to an anchor around the 80 foot mark or finish on Lifestream for a 130 foot pitch.


    This is right of Lifestream.


    8 - 11 bolts depending on what anchor you stop at.

    This pitch is rad! It's well worth doing if you're on the ledge, and you can easily hang the draws from Lifestream as you lower. Expect some wild body English.
