This climb starts on balancy ramps with two bolts that deposit you at the start of the crack. A nice hands splitter leads up to the huge boulder that you must surmount.

There is a second pitch of 10 something, but we didn't do this pitch.


This route is located on the North - NW corner of the butte. You can't miss this splitter.


Doubles of cams from .75 - 2 C4
1 set smaller cams and possibly one #3 C4
Nuts if you like.
Two bolts down low before the crack
Two bolt anchor to rap.


Really fun route! Varied face climbing to a great splitter. The pg13 part is getting to the first bolt, and can be protected (mental piece at least) with a small cam (0.3). I would also add 1x 0.4, 2x 0.5 in addition to the the rack above. An extra 0.75 wouldn't hurt. Mar 15, 2017

The second pitch is 10- wide & slopey climbing to another set of rap anchors. An exposed 4th class scramble gets you to the top. If you are planning to climb the second pitch, have the follower bring up a few big cams. Jun 22, 2009
