Description

You are made to respect this route early, as you have to crawl to the base, located in an alcove. The exposure starts here, with the alcove 30 feet above the talus, and the valley spread out a few hundred feet below.

A stiff layback starts out the route, keep pulling until you feel the opposite wall at your back. Continue to the handrail, traverse into the light, and contemplate the move over the roof. The exposure is thrilling at this point, enjoy it. Pull the move, clipping the bolts, and clamber to the top.

Descend via a chimmney to the back (Wild Gravity) of the formation.

Protection

Good range from finger sized to 3-4 inch, 2 bolts (1/4", 5/16").
