Description

Pitch 1: 50' right of a deep chimney scramble up ledges past scoops. You are heading up to a long straight crack/seam. Climb to the right of this feature past a couple of bolts and thin gear in the crack. A 2 bolt belay(1/4 inchers)is reached near the top of the crack. Pitch 2: Head up and right to another two bolt belay (3/8" bolts). Continue up cracks or rappel to the ground (200'). This route is runout and continuous with some rolling crystals for extra excitement.

Protection

Thin standard rack to 2.5" and qd's for 3 bolts

The route was originally done as 3 pitches.

Pitch 1: Easy up to a big ledge with a large crack along the bottom. I have been told that bolts have be subsequently added.

Pitch 2: Climb straight up on the right side of the seam using bolts and gear to a small 1x5 foot ledge with 3 bolts, one of the bolts is bad.

Pitch 3: Climb straight up on unprotected 5.5 face vearing left to a small overhang situated 10' before the top which takes large cams. Nov 4, 2007
