Description [Suggest Change]

This is the next route left of Touch and Go. A thin crack leads up to a large, sloping ledge. Two bolts protect steep face climbing up to the top. The second bolt was added after the first ascent.

Protection [Suggest Change]

two bolts plus small gear (including cams) for the initial crack, and for a thin crack above the two bolts

The two closely-spaced 1/4" bolts on The Cornerstone (left of Touch And Go) were replaced with a single 1/2" bolt in January 2003. Mar 21, 2003

A pretty fun climb when the line on Touch and Go gets too long. The bottom crack protects with a 00 Metolius TCU, but it is at your feet before you get onto solid ground - best to be solid at the grade (like many jtree routes) for this one. Mar 29, 2011
