DescriptionThis excellent route is just right of the Lowe Route.
Climb a flake, heading right past a fixed pin and up a dihedral.
The second pitch wanders past some fixed gear and ends at a two bolt anchor. This pitch is probably the crux but not as heady as the first.
The last pitch climbs through the '?' and is reminiscent of the Lowe Route's last pitch, except without the crack for gear. Take your time on this pitch, it's easy to get off route and the pro is spaced. Supposedly, there's a bolt somewhere, I never found it; it probably sucks anyway. There are some good patina horns to sling.
