Description [Suggest Change]
This fine route, hand-drilled in a rainstorm, ascends the steep face left of "Captain Fist." Pitch 1: A short easy waltz up the right side of the Hollow Flake to a tree belay. Pitch 2: Climb up right on the steepening face to the base of a quartz dike. Climb the dike and then move out right on steep face climbing (5.10c/d)and follow a thin crack (TCUs) to easier climbing and a 2-bolt belay below the arch. Rappel from here with double ropes or climb Pitch 3: Pull over the arch above (5.8)and scramble up right to the cliff-top. Walk-off south from here.
