Description [Suggest Change]

This route is on the north face of the formation. It is crossed by High Plains Drifter, which starts in a shallow corner at the base of the left side. Silverado starts right of this, by a wide flake flanked by a bush. The layback curves left and up, with increasing steepness, with the crux pull just before the end.

Overall the rock quality is good, the gear is good, and the positioning is awesome. The start is a bit tricky, and the moves up to the crux are continuous but not too hard. The final crux moves are on the edge of the formation with great exposure.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Doubles in small cams up to red alien, a couple of hand size to supplement the anchor on top, which is currently a partially drilled angle and a 1/4 inch bolt.
