Description

The Evictor offers one of the best difficult all-gear leads in the area. Many people jump on it on toprope from the Center Route anchors (please toprope through QDs and not directly off the anchor). It was originally led with the gear in place, but it has seen many ascents with all gear placed on the lead burn, usually after toprope prep. Watch Cameron Tague go ground up and take repeated whippers off it in the Scary Faces video- you will see absolutely no fear in his eyes.

Begin at the Center Route, but head left at an obvious downward-pointed flake. Now climb unprotected rock to the overlap, place gear and rest (last OK stance). Now pull on fingertip jams, and barge into the sustained climbing above. The crux is protected, if you can hang around to place the gear, but there is a bit of excitement both below and after the hardest moves.

Protection

Aliens to #2 Friend, several wire stoppers.

Wasp Alert

There have been in the crack where Evictor pulls away from Center Route.
