Description

This climb follows a prominent right-facing arch. A large flake has fallen off, and is standing on edge at the base of the route. This is the "axe." A difficult, unprotected undercling start leads to hand jamming and then face climbing. If you can handle the start, this is a fairly nice route. Rappel from the top.

I disagree with the "R" rating. One can place a small cam right from the start to protect the move onto the "axe". Apr 24, 2011

Here's the rack I used: #1,3,4 Camalot; #11 Hex; Thin to med. stoppers...and do look for that Key Edge for the left foot to step off the "Ax"...just sayin'... Mar 25, 2015

Be aware of placing pro on the first big undercling flake. It's getting loose and is bound to break soon Apr 2, 2017
