Start just left of The Showdown and climb plated face up to a steep but somewhat chossy double crack system. The crux is more easily accomplished if a hand jam is used, but the rock is well-featured and can be face climbed as well. Once past the crux, finish up and right with an easy bit of slab to anchors on a ledge.

There are some good moves on this climb, but the choss factor and lack of continuous climbing detract from the overall quality.


Located in the center of the formation, this climbs face up to a prominent crack system and then finishes up that.


6 bolts, chain anchors

This route is good and the hand jam is not necessary I think. It would certainly be more painful than its worth. There are other holds but they are also quite sharp.

I did take a fall on the bulge. Confident I could redpoint now knowing the beta. Fall was clean and protected on an overhang. Sep 13, 2016

This route was kind of a walk, other than the crux which was one unnecessarily painful hand jam Oct 14, 2011
You want to be able to do 10b hand crack on this climb. I kicked down a lot of choss around the crack. Jul 18, 2011
