Description

Approach: Hike up to the start of Twilight Zone, and continue 50' right along the ledge around onto the west face. Spot a left-facing dihedral with a finger crack and a small pine tree. This is the route.

Climb the corner, go up a slab, then up a short headwall to the 2-bolt anchor at the top. Belay from here, then rap the route.

Not a great route, but worth doing if you're in the area and you brought some trad gear with you.

Protection

Nuts and cams to 2". There is a 2-bolt anchor at the top of the climb.

The crux on this is near the bottom in perhaps the first 20'. Gear up to a #2 Camalot in size is all you need. Aug 9, 2013
