Description

Approach up the chute right of Lost in Wonderland (class 3-4).The route is on the east face of an obvious brown varnished block at the top of the chute. It climbs an overhanging dihedral with a tips crack. A short route, but excellent varnish.

Protection

Mostly thin with gear up to 2.5"

A fantastic route up an attractive left-arching corner with lots of stemming and a distinct crux midway. The gear is excellent (small tcu's work well) but a little tenuous to place. Four stars out of five only because it's not longer.

We approached this from the north, but headed out to the south which might be a little easier as it avoids a mandatory slab section which was sorta dicey with full packs.

The view from this area, particularly the summit, is stunning with distant views of the Astro Domes and the rest of the Wonderland. Feb 7, 2005
