DescriptionThis low-angle face is one of the easiest routes in Diablo Canyon. It's mostly 5.6 most of the way up, with a few thin 5.7/5.8 moves in the last 20'. The crux is just after the last bolt.
Formerly a mixed bolts/gear route, this good beginner route recently had more bolts added so that it is fully bolt-protected (Not to say anything about bolt ethics, but if you're going to have a "traditude" about a 5.8 on the Winter Wall, you should probably stop and consider how ridiculous you are).
LocationThis climbs the slabby face left of the white left-facing dihedral. # 8 in the beta photo.
Rap or lower w/ one 60m rope.
