Description

Going up the actual gully (2 minutes), you will notice an obvious overhanging arete on the west facing wall. This route starts up the easy slab, right of this arete, to two bolts, and then progresses to a fun flake. The crux is low and very tricky. The upper face is consistent and doesn't let up. The main problem with this route was a bit of loose rock from the 2nd bolt to the fun part of the flake. One key handhold flexed, cracked, and spat out pieces of rock when we pulled on it, yet that was the only way could see to do it. Bring a helmet.

Protection

2 bolts start this route off, and small to medium gear will protect the middle to the top. The middle was the most specific. We used a purple DMM and a brass nut.

Still lots of loose rock, but it seemed to stay in place to allow us to climb, just a little unnerving. The climbing seemed harder (physically and technically) than Black Monday, and the gear was really easy. Sep 29, 2007
