DescriptionA hand crack start leads up to an imposing roof (5.10+) which goes at a far easier grade than appearances suggest. Once established over the lip the climbing is off-vertical, thin face with difficult smearing. The crux will be found around the vicinity of the fifth bolt with easier moves leading to the top and a bolted anchor/rap.
This spectacular route is well worth the rugged thirty minute approach. Almost a sport climb, except for the crack start, but the rest of the route is protected like one. Four stars out of five for enjoyable positioning and the high-quality moves.
- This photogenic route was featured on the front and back cover of Alan Bartlett's "Rock Climbs of Indian Cove" guidebook (1st edition).
