Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

The crux is th slab moves above the arete. Cool climbing up a nice crack that leads to great face climbing on the arete and upper slab.

This is a great climb that will only get better with more ascents and cleaning.

Location

Start 25 feet from the road and climb up to the obvious mossy crack.

Protection

Bring gear up to a gold Camalot, long runners and six quickdraws.

Rap from a two-bolt anchor.

BE CAREFUL...a 60-meter rope just makes it to the ground.

I thought this was a really fun route. The moss didn't really detract from the quality of the route. However, the climbing will improve as this thing cleans up. I had been looking at this line for over 2 years and I never got around to climbing it. Bob beat me to it. Good job cleaning the route. My only complaint is that the intended line leaves the crack before it ends. It seems that the route could have followed the crack for another 10 feet or so and then pulled onto the slab. Nonetheless, the route was great. Jun 28, 2006

This is a fun route. It still contains lots of moss, but most of the moves are clean. I think the bolts start in a logical place. The crack pinches down as it gets higher. Apr 29, 2014
