Description

Continuous 5.10 climbing on small holds, plus cruxes. Faith in feet is needed. Starting from the West(?) edge of the North(?) face (left side when facing the summit from below and down-hill). Climb up a few feet of low angle rock to a bulge, through the bulge (hard) then up and past a tiny tree past seams and a groove to a rest before finishing on the lower angle face for the top 3rd of the formation, on the right side of the arete directly below the rap chains.
There is another route in a right-facing flake just right of this that is far more obvious, easier, and offers more protection.

Location

This route ascends from the lowest point of rock on the left side of the Tent Peg as seen from the downhill side.

Protection

Not much- a few nuts and aliens or TCU's or better yet, TR from the anchors at the top.

My Group Top roped this after doing Tent Peg. Well worth that, but I'm not sure how a lead would be. I think the crack in the middle third is shallow. Oct 28, 2015
