Description [Suggest Change]
pitch 1 is a chimney groove to a decent gear belay, 5.8, 70'. pitch 2 is incomplete. Climb up groove passing some loose blocks until possible to step left onto face. Leader must bring a bolt kit here. Unsteady pins forced the leader (me) to down-climb to the belay.
Location [Suggest Change]
The NF has an obvious stepped left skyline when standing at the middle of wall. This route begins in chimney/gully which would bisect off the first step.
Protection [Suggest Change]
We failed on this because of a lack of a bolt kit. KB's and arrows may be helpful (handful) an a standard desert rack. Helmets are a must.
