This is a fantastic 5.9! Climb up the face to reach the overhang and then traverse Right to reach a left facing corner (crux). Follow the corner to a large ledge. The traverse to the right is the business and coolest part of the climb. Well protected and exciting!


Find a fairly obvious overhang and left facing corner system as you walk uphill from Great Imposter.


Hands size gear and smaller.

Great climb. Exciting moves punctuated by great rests. It doesn't look that pretty from below, but it's a whole lot of fun. Jul 21, 2008
Couldn't find a placement under the roof, so I ended up clipping the bolt before the traverse that's higher up.

Stellar roof that's a bit of a bear pulling up on with no holds. Definitely a sweet sequence. Next little corner presents some nice finger locks. Sep 16, 2012

You can protect the traverse moves under the roof with a blue-yellow offset master cam/tcu or similar. Bomber piece in a flaring crack that has a bunch of chalk on it. You can also plug great gear in the overhang, below and right of the horn.

No maintained rap station at the top. Bring slings & rings for the tree or be prepared to downclimb the last bit of Roux to a set of shuts above Really Flakey (going south) OR downclimbing 5.2ish by a huge pine tree and ledgey area (going north). You could also probably walk-off if you bring your approach shoes up with you. Oct 22, 2012
