This stupendous steep face climb on dark gray varnish begins on a large platform at the base of a north facing rectangular block across from the Mary Worth Buttress. Balancy moves at the start lead to the first of five bolts. Sustained climbing gains the crux above the fifth bolt. A short hand crack past the crux ends at the top. Easily 3 out of 5 stars.


Quickdraws for five bolts and a medium cam for a short hand crack. A bolted anchor with slings / carabiners is at the top.


Sustained, thin face climbing on excellent rock. Definite crux past last bolt. Jan 29, 2006
The first 10 feet feel like 50 on your fingers. Sustained clean climbing with a fantastic view. Oct 31, 2005
