Description

This route has a more disinctive appearance than Dog Days of Summer and can be located about 12' to the left. Look for shallow left facing corners with a couple of bolts up higher. Start by liebacking up the right side of the flake moving left to a ramp then back right into the first left facing dihedral. I plan on adding a bolt on the ramp as I have never gotten solid gear to protect this section (5.7). Likewise other climbers have commented about the danger getting to the point where good gear can be placed. Be certain to make every placement count on this climb (pg-13). This route offers the standard fare of diversity offered on most climbs here.

Protection

I found it a bit tricky to get pro at the start of the crux, but a good lead for a solid 5.10 climber. No need for cams, stoppers small-finger sizes will do just fine. Aug 5, 2015
