Description

Find finger crack right behind a small aspen tree (white tree trunk) on the way up to arete/finger crack. Take short crack straight up to small ledge under roof (nice rest), go left around roof, following the crack, and follow as it angles left and the angle drops on this low angle slab.....the crack turns into a seam and peeters out, run it out for 30 feet up to a large right facing dihedral....another short but steep and sparsely protected 15 feet leads to a large and loose belay ledge (exciting). Scramble west or east to decend.

Protection

Small cams, stoppers....larger cams for belay.

This route isn't all that bad. The crux is down low in the starting crack. A committing dyno to get your hand in the crack and it's done. There is good small pro here, and you are only at boulder height anyway. Once you are around the roof, it's fun 5.6-7 slab climbing a bit runout. Climb strtaight up for better rock. All in all, a fun climb. Aug 28, 2012

This route sucks. Do the bottom as a boulder problem if you like and spare yourself the garbage above. "Left Angling Crack" is a rotten, flaring seam full of dirt and veg that will lead you into a rubble filled corner above poor pro. Aug 8, 2004

The start seemed hard. Brass nuts. There is good gear on the easier slab above--no need to run it out. Green Alien to #2/Gold Camalot. Lots of loose rock as you reach the belay ledge. Oct 24, 2003
