Description

This is an excellent lieback. The only caution is that a large flake is wedged into the crack, about half way up. It has stayed there through many ascents, but don't pull on it too hard. Rappel from the top or scramble off. Being in a large, left-facing dihedral, it is in the shade in the morning.

Protection

standard rack, with several 2" - 3" pieces

there are rap anchors at the top rapped with a 60m rope. Apr 25, 2011

Super fun layback. Rap off the bolts with a single 60 m rope (not the horn, which requires two ropes). Vogel and Gaines say to "avoid" the loose flake in the middle, but if you really didn't touch the flake at all, I don't think the climb would go at this grade. The layback was sweet and not strenuous, felt like 5.3 to me. The final short vertical crack is a little more strenuous, and 3 out of the 4 people I've seen climb this have gotten a foot stuck in it.
