Description

A fun route which takes the line up the center of the face using an undercling then thin edges and lieback flakes, the crux is moving right and onto the rest ledge one bolt from the top.

The opening moves up to the high first bolt are worrying, there's a good small Friend placement in a slot though before the undercling flake. The crux section also feels a tad runout.

Location

North facing, in the pit.

Protection

4 bolts, bolt anchor on top.

This is a great climb on delicate, vertical moves. More sustained than Dead Man and quite the heady lead for the grade. Jun 16, 2007

Repeated this today after 12 years. Gave me pause for thought but what a great climb! Agree that it's a heady lead. Jul 4, 2010

One of my favorite climbs in the area. A must for the intermediate climber working to improve their leading. Mar 14, 2011
