Description

Blistered Toe is a fun, steeper-than-it-looks pitch of climbing with two starts. To keep the grade at 5.8, start at obvious (but somewhat suspect) flakes about 10 feet left of the crack, climb up 10-15 feet, and traverse right towards the crack. Climbing the crack directly from the ground ups the ante to 5.9+. Climb the crack above, with some jamming and stemming, to a large ledge, and traverse left to a bolted anchor in a right-facing corner.

P2 is loose and possibly inobviously wet - not recommended! Diagonal up right via 5.4 face climbing, to the path of least resistance up to a large overhang (5.6, loose); traverse left here, then pull past the overhang to easier rock. P3 climbs easier rock to the top.

Location

By a tree, below an obvious crack about 100 feet right of the Seasons (e.g The Spring (P1)).

There are two bolts at the left end of the large ledge atop P1, and slings on a tree at the GT / clifftop.

Protection

Standard rack, up to a #3 Camalot.
