This south facing climb, which ascends a polished slab and sharp arete, appears deceptively easy from the ground. After clipping a bolt, high step and rock onto the slab from a platform. Continue to the flattened top of the boulder using small edges on the arete, and micro-knobs on the face past three more bolts. Insecure smearing requires continuous body tension. Traverse left about 7 more feet to the anchors after reaching the flattened top. This route is great but not recommended on a sunny and warm day!


Quickdraws for four bolts suffice for pro. A two bolt rappel anchor with rings is at the top.

Great rock but the lack of height is a factor. Two stars out of five. Dec 9, 2003
