Description

Overhanging start, then climb the face toward the pin. From the pin, trend right to the left side of the arete and follow to the top. Climbing near the top gets a little exciting. Take any gear you find as you head up the last 30 Ft. Good route for a solid 5.9 leader.

Location

Start around the corner and to the left of The Prowess. 20 Ft. right of Nasty Groove.

Protection

small nuts and cams, 1 pin. No anchors at the top but you can easily access the many other sets of anchors nearby.

Sling a chickenhead near the top for pro on that last bit.

One 60m rope will get you down from the pine tree to climber's left of the boulder on the top. Nov 10, 2014

The bottom is sketchy, slightly dirty slab with little in the way of protection. The middle is boring climbing but on clean and interesting looking rock. The top is exposed, runout climbing over a leg breaking ledge with a single chickenhead as protection.

I would not recommend this climb to anyone who isn't solid at leading 5.10 (for instance me!) on gear. It had my heart pumping at the bottom, and a lot of the gear low down was not confidence inspiring. Then again, it was my first climb of the day, so maybe I just had the jitters.

The view from the top is incredible. If you are solid at the grade, you won't regret the reward at the top. Dec 20, 2018
