Description

Not steep enough to be overhanging, but steep enough for a challenge, this route requires a breakfast of champions for a successful ascent. Start out on easy terrain, but there's no turning back after a tricky move. Once committed, it only gets more desperate. Those blessed with an ape index may find it easier to reach a sidepull early in the game. I threw some dynamic from a bad left foot on a nubbin, only to find myself clutching up for the next bolt. A delicate crux traverse to a series of touchy moves on the face gains the next bolt. Continue towards the top across easier terrain and pop over a roof to the chains.

Location

Just west of the most prominent arete on the wall, a bolt line chases up the steepest and longest section of the wall. Rappel from the double chain anchor that is shared with Gad Chutes on the right.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 chain anchor. Helmets for choss.

I replaced the hanger on the 5th bolt today, so she is good to go. Temps are still great in the shade! great route as always! Jun 15, 2017

Straightforward climbing to a crux bulge just past halfway height. You angle up a seam on slopey sidepulls and marginal feet. Head directly for the bolt instead of getting sucked out left at the rounded overhang. Jul 14, 2012

This is the best route I've done up there, the climbing is technical and pumpy with really interesting movement. Liebacking the rail feels desperate as the feet turn to mank. Don't try to move right inside the rounded crack to reach the bolt that's shared with Gad Chutes otherwise you'll blow it. Climb straight up to the jug and clip from there. Jun 2, 2008
