Description

P1. Face climb between the blunt arete and a wide, highly vegetated crack to the left. After 45 feet, the difficulty increases as you gain an inside corner. Climb the dihedral to an impossibly smooth crux section. A nicely placed bolt makes this challenging move less desperate, followed by easier climbing to the anchor. (5.9, 100')

P2. The second pitch flirts with exposure as you follow bolts up the edge of the arete to a diaganol crack that gains a vertical left facing corner. From the top of the corner, finish with an exposed and exhilarating undercling to the left. (5.8, 80')

Location

Leftmost bolted route at Off Duty Area. Starts by a few trees. A 60-m rope is required to rap from the top of P1.

Protection

P1-- 10 bolts.
P2-- bolts plus gear to 2". Purple to red camalots (0.5-1") protect the final undercling; be mindful of the potential swing back into the corner.
