Description

Don't deny yourself the pleasure of climbing this route. The two pitches are best done as one long one-- the longer you can go the better, right?

P1. Climb up ramps and cracks to the ledge. So-so climbing, easy 5.7.

P2. A great pitch. Pull past the bulge lurking over the chains (crux), then head up the face above. Stellar moves for the grade, continuous and great position.

Protection

P1-- 6 bolts, P2-- 11 bolts. Two single rope rappels to the ground.

I second Kai's comment, the second pitch is the money. Steep jugs to super fun face climbing with a wee bit of finger crack thrown in. Wonderful warm up, very safely bolted, great views of the tantalus range, and an easy walk off. What's not to like? Nov 24, 2011

Thought this route was nicer than Emil or Charlotte's Web. Linked both pitches with eleven draws...there are way too many bolts and I skipped a few. Aug 16, 2010

Great views from the large flat area above the top anchors. Mountain tops poking through the clouds backlight by the setting sun... Sep 2, 2009

Definitely best to trick your partner into doing the first pitch so you can swap leads and get the second. Mar 12, 2008
