Description

Crazy route finding.

Start at the point driectly below overlook, scramble up to ledge 10ft, place a piece in the muck and contiue up easy ground to under the crux bulge. Place a piece (#1 bd) and move out right then up and over the bulge.

Location

Start at the point directly below the overlook, right below a ledge 10ft high.

Protection

Wandering route. Get creative.

No Anchors, walk over to the overlook, thread a post or two and rappel off.

This area obviously doesn't get much, if any traffic. There wasn't an obvious trail to approach, but we made our way up to the cliff line and found the start of this climb. I scrambled up the ledge and I decided the start of the climb was at a small tree that I slung for good measure. I wandered up a series of mantles to what I would consider 5.7 climbing. Not really knowing where the route went, I aimed for the obvious hand crack, above a small tree, through a small roof. Between the crack and the right arĂȘte is a small roof, that perhaps I should have gone around to the right of, but I chose to follow the most obvious gear line. I was able to sink bomber gear before finally committing to getting up and out of that crack and topping out. There were plenty of healthy trees about 10' back from the edge to sling and make an anchor to pull my follower up. I'm not sure the finish I did is 5.7. Jun 19, 2017
