Description

Start in a left-facing corner 20' downhill from Dominator, by a large pine tree.

Climb the corner past a bolt (5.8) to a ledge. The cracks to the left of the corner can also be climbed (5.10a).

Step right (5.8) and climb a V-dihedral with a good crack to a 2-bolt anchor.

Belay from a small ledge at the top, and rappel.

Protection

1 bolt plus gear to 3". 2-bolt anchor.

Climbed this route today - I thought it was a good route, but it will be better when it gets cleaned of the lichen and some loose gravel. Mar 14, 2009

Did the "10a" variation. Felt about 5.9. Pretty close to a bomb route. The 5.8 variation to the right (with the bolt) looks like the better choice. The rock on the cracks is grungy and questionable. I angled slightly left to hit the arete, then back right on a "slab" to rejoin the other variation at a fist crack. The upper dihedral is a little dirty, but at least it's not going to fall off on you. Nov 14, 2003
