Begin about 30 ft. left of Such a Savage and climb a ramp up to a bolt that protects a 5.9 move to an easier vertical crack. This leads directly to the third bolt of Such A Savage. Clip three bolts on Such A Savage, then move left, away from Such A Savage, and climb steep face past 4 more bolts (with the crux above the last bolt) to a 2-bolt anchor. 80 foot rappel. From the anchor you can also climb up and right to join Such A Savage for a second pitch (5.10a) to the top.


8 bolts, optional pro for the crack

The upper section of the pitch has some of the best rock in Josh.

A direct start (10+) was also done just left of the starting ramp with a fixed pin, but it's long gone. Mar 2, 2007
