Description

Start up ledges and gain a great, finger crack. Continue up the crack to a ledge below a perfect, hand crack in dike rock. Climb up through the hand crack and gain a large ledge. Continue up easy climbing to the top. Downclimb the gully to the east.

Location

This is located about 50 feet right of Verachocha on a right-facing part of the wall. The climb starts on some ledges with a pine tree. It is possible to identify the climb by a perfect, hand crack roof in dike rock high on the climb.

Protection

Nuts and cams, small to hand.

Descent beta: on the big ledge after the nice dike rock crack look for two Metolius rap hangers back and left. The rap is a FULL 35m, so remember to tie stopper knots in your 70m rope just in case. Oct 18, 2015

Pretty sustained climbing on good rock with a definite crux coming at the little roof. Climbs better than it looks. Highly recommended. Sep 24, 2015
