DescriptionThis route starts on the West Face of the Labor-dome, left of center. THe route climbs a small and short left-facing crack/corner to reach a small roof, where it traverses LEFT under the roof (crux) and out around the lef hand edge of a horizontal flake, then over it. Traverse right (now on top of the flake) back to a crack (easy) to reach a crack that climbs upward for a few feet before ending. Run it out a bit on the easier slab and belay in a rounded ledge below the roof.
On the 12/26 ascent, John D. was "running" up this (following) near dusk faster than I could suck in rope. 3 feet from the top he snapped off a hold and fell about 10-12 feet down the face (no injury). There may be more "temporary" holds nearby on this line, so please beware. It seems possible that this lead was a FFA. It was certainly an undocumented line at the time.
To descend, walk/scramble to climber's right (south) as described in the "rock" page.
