Description

This route offers great diversity for a climb of its length. Start by stemming up the left-facing dihedral below the giant roof. Upon reaching the roof traverse left along a fingertip traverse to a bolt. It is wise to use an over-the-shoulder sling on last piece of gear placed in the corner plus on the bolt at the end of the traverse. Move up and right on overhanging rock past several more bolts. Climb the flake above to a bolt then move up and left to the anchors.

Protection

1 set of stoppers, 1 set of cams up to 3.5", 1 set of RPs, a couple of over-the-shoulder slings.
