Description

This west face route starts 400 feet from the southern edge of the rock. It ascends a steep left facing dihedral to the summit of Like Heaven. The Like Heaven summit jets out of the face to the west.

P1: Begin on a large block, reach over the void and pull over the overhang. This move is a little committing, a small nut placement at the lip might help this mental move. Head up a a few feet and tarverse right to a belay spot. (~40 feet).

P2: Head up the wonderfully pocketed wall next to the wide left facing dihedral. Belay at the top, off of slung knobs or large cams. (~80 feet).

P3: Climb the northern edge of Like Heaven to the pointy summit. (no pro w/ great exposure, ~30 feet).

Descent: There are two old bolts on the summit. I guess one could do a double rope rap to the west. We did a low angle rap to the east and continued up the ridge line. We then downclimbed to a tree and rapped.

Protection

Flatirons rack, include tricams for pockets and an optional larger pieces (2-3 inches).
