Description

P1) Face climb up a smooth, run-out apron of rock past one bolt (1/2" SS) to a ledge with belay bolts (1/2" SS).

P2) A short pitch with a steep, exposed hand crack takes you to a huge ledge with belay bolts (1/2" SS).

P3) Chimney up the featured wide crack which narrows and then turns to a crack up a slab which leads to a belay stance at the base of a vertical section; gear belay.

P4) Easier climbing up steep but featured cracks takes you to the top as you aim for a notch; gear belay.

It's very possible and perhaps even recommended to combine pitches when possible on this route.

* Descend by rappelling off the shorter backside via two sturdy bolts (3/8", 1/2") which are located just left as you pass through the notch; a single rope will suffice to descend.

This is a splendid adventure for the grade and merits four stars out of five.

Location

Located on the far left side of Saddle Rocks (well left of Walk on the Wild Side) and visible from afar as the right of two long, parallel cracks which define the left side of Saddle Rocks.

Protection

Take a good selection of gear to 3 inches and numerous long slings.

* All bolts on the route have been replaced and are 1/2" SS.
