DescriptionHidden from view until almost at the base, this route on the southwest face is located in a sunny and sheltered spot which is perfect for those chilly days.
The climb is identified as a left-facing vertical corner which is jammed, liebacked and stemmed to a horizontal three-quarters of the way up. The original finish cut right in the horizontal but a newer bolted finish straightens out the line. A lot of variety is packed into this climb which makes it well worth a visit or two.
