Description

This route ascends the S side of the valley massif just left of large, left-facing corner (hooker).

There is a nice, bouldery, double crack start that allows the belayer to escape the sun somewhat. Its probably 5.7ish. Otherwise, scramble up slabs to a ledge to belay.

Follow a stellar crack (mostly hands) up the face and exit through an easy slot. Belay in the shady cave area.

Walk off easily to the climbers right and back down.

Protection

Gear to three inches, eats nuts.

The listing is for 180 feet, but the chain anchors allow you to easily lower down with a 70m. Pretty sure a 60m would also lower off fine. Aug 25, 2014

This route has a tendency to get vegetated up in the Spring. Other than dealing with the veggies, a nice route. Aug 30, 2012
A pair of rap anchors has now been added left of the crack so people ropes do not get stuck and so people stop rapping off of the manky old slings. Aug 9, 2010

On a cool morning, this is a great route to soak up the sun and get limbered up on. Jun 3, 2005
