Description

Eds. This description was added to increase the information provided. This route is a sport climb up a very smooth-appearing face with virtually no holds. From its appearance from the ground, it looks nearly impossible to climb. Apparently, there are holds. Kudos to the first ascentionist in sending it. Early on, there was a broken hold which was apparently glued back on.

Protection

QDs only. This 40 foot route needs 5 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

Soon to be a classic! Don't be scared off by this one as there are several hidden ledges in the middle of the bare face. The hardest moves are down low (bolts 3 and 4). Dec 31, 2002

I thought the route was fun until the fourth bolt, where it seemed to unravel a bit. I moved out to the right arete above the jug edge (anyone else do this?). The slopey topout was still a bit lichenous, but this should improve with traffic. The route has great stone sans one reinforced hold at the lip of the roof. Jan 26, 2008

Ken Trout's information is partially correct. First ascent: Mark Rolofson in November 1993. I was belayed by Dan Neber on my redpoint that 45 degree November day. I bolted the route in February 1993. The route required cool conditions. A week or so prior to my send, I had tried the climb with Ken in warmer fall conditions. I had a few different belayers over the course of the project.

I hung a long Petal draw on the 3rd bolt. This way, I could clip before launching into the crux sequence. From the jug at the 4th bolt, I lunged up right (5.11) to a horizontal edge at the base of a thin seam crack. Finished up good holds, right of the last bolt. It is too bad the upper panel blanks out. There are 5 protection bolts. Jan 27, 2018
