Description

Face climbing leads into the crack which varies from fingers to hands (5.10b) and then ends about 2/3 of the way up the face. After the crack ends move up and right on huge plates (5.6) to the ledge Enchanted Stairway ends on. To descend head east (towards Thrutcher Dome) through a notch to reach rap anchors above the shorter east face. One rope easily makes it down.

A superb route which combines some fun crack climbing with runout but exhilarating face climbing, all in a semi-remote setting. Three stars out of five.

Location

Starts about 40' down and left from Enchanted Stairway below an obvious crack system that starts partway up the face.
