Begin at the base of Damper and climb up and left to a right-facing flake. A drilled angle piton protects the crux moves move above the flake. Nov 27, 2016

The drilled angle piton was removed due to poor rock quality and replaced with a 1/2” SS bolt and camouflage colored SS hanger courtesy of the ASCA. The new bolt was placed in much better rock about one foot to the right of where the drilled angle was located. Jul 15, 2018
