Begin down and left from the Dominator.

Set up on a ledge beneath a ramp that leans up to the east. Climb the ramp (Class 4), then climb straight up the leftmost dihedral to the 2-bolt anchor at the top.

This route is just left of Common Denominator.


Bring gear up to 2 inches. No bolts. 2 bolt-anchor with rings at the top. Lower off, 100 feet.

This is a very nice pitch. The corner is steep and sustained, and it has some neat stems, backsteps, and jams. Good pro the whole way. Belay from a small stance at the anchor or lower off. A great trad lead for someone breaking into 5.7. Apr 16, 2006

Actually, it is a lot better than it looks and climbs well. The corner look dirty, but it actually isn't, and you don't really get that far into it anyway. May 14, 2007

Good fun! Good holds, good stemming, decent exposure, excellent pro (med-to-large cams), and very easy for the grade. A good beginner trad lead. Sep 2, 2011

At the risk of stating the obvious, there is a lot of loose rock on this pitch. Otherwise, I agree--would be a great first trad lead. Jun 2, 2013

There is some "loose rock", but I would not say there is a lot . Jul 17, 2013

Fun little warm-up. There is a decent amount of vegetation down on the 4th Class ramp, but once you get to the crack it clears up. There are a few loose rocks, but they were decently stable and were easy to avoid. I agree that this is a good climb for newer leaders. Jul 5, 2018
