DescriptionTakes a line between Return of the Crocks and Sinister Slab. A classic slab route... good rock .Start at the lowest point of the slab between the two waves .Small cairn.
P1)Easy climbing to a bolt at 40',then straight up passing two more bolts to double anchors.170'5.8R
P2)Scramble easy slab passed small bushes to stance behind large flake on the right 140'
P3)Climb into the obvious shallow groove passed a bolt at about 110' then hand traverse left into another open groove. Pass another bolt then continue up groove to hanging belay.200'5.8R
P4)Move up right to a bolt near a pot hole then traverse right into and enter another groove .Up this to a rounded ledge, then right again to yet another groove follow this to double anchors.200' 5.7R.
From here one can 4th class about 700' to a fine summit.
Descent .One can rap the route or straight across south about 80' is the set up rap anchors of Return of the Crocks. To reach these climb an easy slab up to the left then easy down climb to anchors.Two raps to the foot of the prominent groove ,then rap to the top of pitch one of Faith Hope and Clarity.
