Description Suggest change

First pitch (5.8) is a very interesting left traversing crack, and a wave like rock.

Second pitch (10a) is the crux, a beautiful 10a thin hands/finder crack that goes left, up, and then right.

Third pitch (5.9) goes straight up from belay through a 5.9 bulge/roof, then up and left.

Standard fourth pitch (5.6R) goes left and up on unprotected 5.6 slab until gaining 5.6 cracks and moving back to the right.

Alternate fourth pitch (5.11a) goes straight up on bolts,

Fifth pitch (5.10a) follows bolts up a slab.

To descend, walk off north (climbers left) on well maintained trail.

Location Suggest change

The route starts near the center of the Papoose. Look for the obvious traversing first pitch. It is very striking and hard to miss.

Protection Suggest change

2.5 inch and smaller. You will need some runners for the first pitch.
