Description

Ascend the north face past three bolts on nice rock. The distance between bolts is significant; definitely not a sport route. At the third bolt go left and then back right up to the top. A direct finish above the third bolt is 5.12- (on TR).

Protection

Three bolts and one #3 TCU in a horizontal between the second and third bolts. Medium cams and long runners to sling horns work well for an anchor. Walk off to the left (east).

Line is not obvious at all at third bolt, going left ( and downish ? ) is counterintuitive. The fall from the direct line is less than attractive ( take my word for it ). I'd rate the direct finish .11+ maybe? Apr 6, 2004
