DescriptionThis is a nice, sport route up the middle of the second buttress of Mt Thoridin about 1 pitch up. Hike about 1 hour from Panorma Point dropping into the drainage and then angling cross-country to the crag.
P1. Approach via 1st pitch of Papal Bull/Mr. Misty and angle in from the L to the start or via 1st pitch of Pope on a Rope 5.8 and angle in from the R to the start OR rappel in from the top of the crag with 2 ropes.
P2. Dance up a nice, less-than-vertical slab past 8 bolts. Decipher a thin crux between the 5th and 6th bolts.
Rap twice 100 feet and 160 feet or climb to the top of the crag with natural pro.
