Lieback up an intermittent seam, eventually cranking over it. There are several hard spots and also a few rests.


This is the first route encountered on the main trail. There is one bolted line lower on the ridge.


10 bolts to chains.

Challenging, interesting climbing, and a bit heads-up in places. A very rewarding lead. Oct 31, 2010

Amazing 5.10 lead climb, a must-do. Solid liebacks and stemming with good rests as you go along. Gets tricky towards the end, which is definitely where the crux is. Have fun! Apr 3, 2016

Loved this climb! My buddy had to lower off the eighth bolt, so I toproped to there and then finished it off. I ended up traversing left onto the face after clipping the 9th bolt, not sure if that's the easiest way to go or if you should move left sooner. Nov 26, 2017
