Description

It starts out 5.6 up 15 foot corner with wide crack and then heads up easy slab between 2 big boulders and scoots up to slab traverse to the right and belays at large tree below the famous Verschniedung V-slot with perfect hand crack.

Pitch 2 heads up to the slot, place stoppers and/or small cams before making tricky moves into slot. Then jam perfect hands for 40-50 feet straight up the V-slot. When this crack ends, you must go left up overhanging crack with big holds for 20 feet to slab....move up slab and traverse left for 15 feet to belay, now updated with a 2 bolt anchor (Metolius rap hanger & chains).

Descent is one double rope 60m rappel and a scramble down to ground or two raps with a 60M rope. This route is just right of The Unsaid, one of the first popular areas to climb on west ridge. Verschniedung is easily recognized by a tower that rises above the ridge with a v-slot and vertical hand crack (easily seen from trail).
