Description

Wide left facing dihedral. Very aesthetic from a distance. A bit gritty up close. An easy offwidth for the valley but A great place to get some technique. Best to do in one long pitch instead of three like the guide says. Good rests along the way.

SUPER IMPORTANT: Loose hanging death flake on the first pitch. The wall to the left of it is marked with an X and an arrow pointing to it. If you touch it, it will probably fall...my friend knocked it loose jamming his hand next to it. It can be climbed past without disturbing it. Someone experienced should clean it. May 30, 2009

Managed to get my old school purple bd #4 stuck on the beginning of p2. If a kind soul gets it out and is feeling generous I would be grateful to have it back (reward in form of beer/karma). If not, I hope it has many happy adventures ahead of it. Feb 19, 2013
Chris, it is still there. Couldn't get it out :( Feb 25, 2013
No fixed cam as of today. I did it from ground in one pitch (to the top anchor). Well, I got the onsight, so I'll say it's doable. But in hindsight, I realize the description I read and took recommendation from was written by Salamanizer . I've never met him but know a few people who climb with him. He is a beast! Gear was not a problem (I didn't place much on p1), but when you have a ton of rope out upper high, it gets really heavy to clip. If this climb is at your limit, you might want to take advantage of the big belay ledge at the top of p1. My 2 cents. Mar 21, 2016
