Description

This shoots up the slab, sort of right of middle, to the obvious crack on the face above. The crux is the slab moves. A yellow TCU protects it. The crack is beautiful till you've pulled the bulge to the low-angle crap and a belay above. The long second pitch is just easy slab and stemming to a tree. Scramble off right.

Protection

Standard rack to #3.5 Camalot.

Started with the crack variation to the right of the standard start to avoid the 5.8R section to an old bolt. We rated our variation and the route overall at about 5.6 PG-13. 2 stars for the rock and movement, 3 stars for position and fun! Great little adventure route with a fun mix of slab and crack. If you're a solid 5.7 leader, don't let the 5.4R/X section scare you off, it's a quick scramble on clean rock. After topping out, there is no good descent for this route. We opted to head west to the gully, and while it was relatively easy hiking, it was both loose and brushy. Mar 2, 2013
