Description

A fun route with a thin and tricky start. Despite the name, loose rock on this climb is not a problem (though wet, seeping rock often is). Not exactly a routine 5.7.

Starting on a slab with sparse protection, move up to a fixed pin about 20' up. Continue up to the base of a short right-facing dihedral with good protection, then climb this dihedral up to a spacious ledge. A second short dihedral leads to a finish just below a big ledge at the top.

Location

Starts about 20' left of Winter's Respite. Rap from ring anchors.

Protection

Standard rack, nothing bigger than 2". Bolted anchors at the lip of the ledge.
