Description

A fun corner. Protects well with a couple steep sections. Great for trad beginners.

Location

Start at the base of a tall right facing, left slanting corner system 25' right of Ye Gods. Assend the corner to reach anchors on the Drop Zone ledge.

Descent: Rap from anchors with a 60m rope.

Protection

Standard rack, some old fixed pro, mostly smaller stuff.
Is this a good route for self belaying? Is there easy access to rappel down to build an anchor? Jul 18, 2017

Climbing guide says there are shuts at the top on the belay ledge, but there were actually two nice bolts, thanks! Easy rap from there back down the face (essentially down "Dropzone" - left of Candy Corner. Nov 14, 2016

Make sure nobody is above you. Rockfall is a serious concern here. Oct 27, 2015

This is kind of a miserable lead, at least more than most, when it's cold and wet - ice likes to accumulate behind the flake. Jan 12, 2014

This is an interesting route that has a very defined crux. It has lots of rockfall from Skyline Traverse but makes for a good intermediate route. May 21, 2012

Used this route to help several first timers break into leading. Beware, when you belay, stand down and right from the route. Rock fall at the base of this route is very common. Nov 9, 2010

A really ideal place to introduce someone to trad. Plenty of places to put gear so the 2nd can practice cleaning. Helmets are very necessary as there always seems to be rockfall if there are parties above on other routes (ie Skyline Traverse). Jun 8, 2009
