Even though it's been a while since I climbed this route, I remember it well. The crux is a short but almost vertical corner and finger crack that abruptly ends at the tiny and completely flat summit of this exfoliation flake pinnacle. An exciting little climb. Rap anchor needs to be replaced! Jul 23, 2010

I believe the FFA was ~1965 by Chris Fredericks and Frank Sacherer. Mar 23, 2011
Chris McNamara replaced the anchor around 1999 or so. Dec 15, 2011

The guidebook rates this as 10a R. While slightly intimidating, the gear is there. Bring lots of small cams, small offset nuts, and plenty of slings. Jan 2, 2012

I led this back in 1981, and used entirely passive pro in addition to one old fixed piton in the final lieback/dihedral. No need for an "R" rating, just MHO. Sep 16, 2015
