To the right of the 5.8 corner is a seam/crack in the middle of the smooth face. Climb chunky rock to the base of this. Clip the bolt and crimp up to better holds and another bolt. Move up and left dropping in a piece or two and work your way to another bolt and a boulder problem crux. Old school open coldshuts await you at the top.


Single set wires, cams.

Huge sandbag for 5.10a with a few tricky painful crimps on steep slab. Mar 2, 2016
Hi Derek, the route has become more difficult over time as some holds broke since the original ascent. I put it as 10d in the new guide. Mar 20, 2016
