Description

As you may guess this route can be found on the N by NW corner of the formation. One can scramble up the first 40' slab to belay at a bench or climb this in 2 pitches. Great, well protected climbing in an airy setting.

your gear is the anchor. There is a nut and a black sling. I think we may have backed this up with another sling. We were psyched to get up those lines - all four are great. We also tried the obvious ear feature to the right of 'down and out' but it was a real choss pile full of quano - too bad. Oct 16, 2006

What is the rap anchor now? We climbed the east face of this formation a few years back (scary and unprotected 5.8ish or harder, 2 pitches, about 240 feet give or take) and rapped off a stopper we fixed and tied into with a black 9/16" BW climb spec sling. Still there? Rappel was on the SW side and down the routes you look like you've climbed. Nice sends! Oct 16, 2006
