Description Suggest change

Start about 20 ft right of Walker spur, on the same ledge.

Pitch 1:Begin up a heucoed face. You 'll see a bolt in brown varnish about 60 ft up. Link features to this first bolt, and a second bolt will appear shortly. Climb out the roof and up the face above to a 2 bolt anchor on a small ledge.5.10b.

Pitch 2: Continue up the perfect varnished face. Link small cracks and obvious features for 130' to a 2 bolt anchor. 5.8.

I did this route last week and you can rap to the ground from the 2nd pitch anchors with a 70 meter rope. No trickery needed!

Descent: rap the route with 2 ropes.
