Description [Suggest Change]

Extremely impressive for a route FA'ed in 1940. This route is a graveyard of very old pitons, most of which do not engender a warm, fuzzy feeling. The main crux is the transition from the crack to the face; as usual, it's probably easier if you're tall. There are some decent rests, though, if you can find a way to capitalize.

Location [Suggest Change]

15 feet right of the first vertical crack around the corner from the entrance to the Crevice, at some boulders below a crack.

Pitch 1: Climb up onto the boulders just right of the crack, step up left to teh crack, and follow it to a belay ledge/rap station to the left.

Pitch 2: Climb the outside corner to the top.

There is a new rappel anchor off a pine tree on the other side of the Crevice. One rope will reach the ground.

Protection [Suggest Change]

More than adequate, but bring some larger cams for the P1 belay area (Camalot 3.5, 4). Walk way back from top for an anchor, the area at the immediate top is barren.
