Description

High Tops ascends the clean dihedral to the crux undercling on the main face of the Pyramid. Undercling left to where you can cross the roof (balancy) to slightly incipient cracks on the face above. Make easier moves up and right to a good crack. A ways up the good crack face holds lead out left (unprotected) to a hanging belay (Todd Swain 5.11 face route) and rappel station. The FA apparently continued up the crack to the top.

Protection

Standard rack to 3".

AJ's correct. I recall tiptoeing along and atop a death flake 2nd pitch mid-way up. Bet it's still there. Rap after 1st pitch far better idea.... . Jan 8, 2004
