Description

A popular route. Both pitches are long and with widely spaced bolts which makes it feel less like a sport climb. It is possible to supplement the bolts by placing large cams in some of the "holes", but this hardly feels necessary. The 2nd pitch traverses right to within 15' of the tree in the corner, before going straight up the steep headwall (crux).The entire climb is steep climbing up huge huecos. Pumpy, but not technically difficult.

The good exposure and stinginess of bolts are what make this climb exciting. Take it for what it is.

Location

The obvious pock-marked face immediately left of the large tree-topped corner.

Protection

pitch 1: 150ft (5.9), 4 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
Pitch 2: 150ft (5.10-), 4 bolts and a small cam. 1 bolt anchor can be supplemented with mid-sized cams.
