DescriptionClimb easy face to a horizontal dike. Follow the dike left using heel hooks and hand holds to a strenuous mantle. Continue up past two bolts on thin face to the top.
I believe [the "R" rating] is justified because if you come off while doing the difficult mantle just under the 5th bolt (10 feet directly left of the 4th bolt) you will take a nasty pendulum and the rope may hit a sharp edge on a portion of the discontinuous dike.
Protection6 bolts (all 3/8"), pro to 3" for anchors.
All 6 bolts were replaced 2/11/01 by the ASCA.
