Description

Just down the gully from Gully Washer locate a hand crack in a right-facing flake. Climb the crack as it fades over a steep face...where it curves right and fades, climb up and left past a bolt (first crux) on steep slab to a flared crack...follow crack up until you see 2 bolts on slab to the right and traverse to the steep, finger crack (might want to extend these cuz of the rope drag and zig-zag nature of the climb below the crack)...crank up this perfect finger crack, thru bulge (crux) and up to easier terrain and a chain anchor...lower 80 feet to the ground.

Eds. Dale Haas and Bruce Hildenbrand bolted a direct finish to the route. At the third bolt, instead of traversing right into the hand crack, go straight up past two bolts to a new two bolt anchor with rings for rappel. The climbing is in the 5.9+/5.10- range. 

Protection

Stoppers and small to medium cams, 3 bolts protect a blank face...chain anchor.

Eds. For the direct finish, clip two bolts to a new two bolt anchor with rings for rappel.
