Description

Long, steep and exposed. For the east this is a big route for the grade.

The second and last pitches are the best. The first pitch is so-so, the third pitch is short, and the fourth pitch is a route finding conundrum.

But the views are amazing, the rock is solid. The belays are all natural and the top out is absolutely fantastic.

I was so frazzled after leading this that I had to back off a 5.5 later that day.

This is definitely a classic route.

Location

Across the Ampitheater from the Prow. Head down the Ampitheater and keep toward the southern face. Go past the Mummy and around the corner until you can see a wide, left facing flake above the treeline. This is the top of the first pitch. Start on easy ground below the flake/crack.

Walk off to the left.

Protection

Standard NC rack. No fixed anchors.
