Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details


Published for the sake of info- so you know to bring a brush or not to bother with it. The first 4 meters needs cleaning to be worthy. After cleaning, it won't be a bomb....
The route is in an awkward corner for a few feet with no real crack to protect until you get established a few meters up on a good horizontal. After that, textbook stopper placements are in the corner and the route ascends nice edges on the left-side of the dihedral, on the main wall.
After about 40 feet you arrive at a belay tree with a rap anchor on it.


Reach the far West end of the Devil's Advocate, and find where a chimney splits this into 2 massive roofs. Walk north of here to a left-facing dihedral with poor rock and no pro at the bottom. A tree at the top has a single good sling and mallion rapid link on it for a rap anchor.


No pro until after the crux. Mind the rock quality and moss/lichen- I did not have a brush when I did this route so it has not been cleaned. After 4 meters, all you need is a set of stoppers for textbook placements up the corner to the fixed anchor on the tree (webbing and a rapid-link.)
