Description

This is a nice route up the middle of the second buttress of Mt. Thorodin linking various features as it zig-zags up the face. It is just left of a line of bolts about 1 pitch up and just right of a face with 2 bolts. It includes a left-facing crack/dihedral about midheight and continues with a crack above. Hike about 1 hour from Panorama Point dropping into the drainage and then angling cross-country to the crag. Perhaps this deserves1.5 stars?

P1. Start on a easy slab lightly protected as it steepens 5.8. Work up a crack, place pro high and right, traverse left across a small slab, 5.9, and find a belay at a tree.

P2. Move up and right into a crack/dihedral (crux). Continue up to a comfortable belay.

P3. Continue up the crack as it zig-zags and then straightens outs. I found a second crux up here as I moved left to avoid wet rock and returned to the crack. You will find a 2 bolt anchor near the top. It is easy terrain above.

Finish to the top & walk off left and back the the base OR from this last anchor rappel 180 feet, and then 170 feet to the ground from the tree OR rap multiple short rappels 80 feet, 100 feet, 100 feet, and 130 feet angling right.

Protection

A standard rack and a 60m rope are nice.
