Wide fingers to small roof in dihedral p1; wandering face on slab (no real pro) to chimney.


NE corner of Japhead, wander up from east side to base of route in notch.


Fingers to #4 camalot or big bro for exit chimney. Slung huge loose block for anchor on p1, not much pro on p2 for a spicy runout lead that I thought I wouldn't be able to back off once committed. Wander to top and walk SE to anchors on Crimson Crescent, rap double ropes.

1st pitch is a quality one, it really would be worthy of a rap anchor so you didn't have to do the sketchy second pitch. Jan 28, 2007

location should read NE corner!
There is now a 2 bolt anchor atop the first pitch, awesome pitch worth coming back to, if not for the summit. Nov 18, 2009

The slab wasn't difficult, maybe 5.7 or 5.8 occasionally with no pro and a big fall. Feb 20, 2014

Pitch one is great, 3 stars at least. Pitch 2 is not great, 1 star at most. I give it 2 stars overall. Nov 16, 2016

First pitch is nice. Tricky at the bottom. Gear is there, but small and sometimes in suspect rock.
Slider nuts to a single # 3 Camalot (not necessary).
Bolts at top of first pitch. 70m just makes the ground with single rope rap.
Did not do P2. Looks a little sketchy. May 29, 2018
