Description

The crux is pulling the 3 intimidating bulges 160 feet off the ground. The route is well protected though, and offers great climbing. You can do the route in 3 separate pitches if you are worried about rope drag, but doing it one long rope stretcher isn't a problem (make sure you have 60m or longer 50m will be to short)

Location

While facing the Stoned Wheat Thin Cliff, the route goes up the wide crack on the far left, then moves out onto the left arete, and after about 20-30 feet moves onto the face. Pull the 3 bulges near the top. The top is very flat and big and offers a perfect stance to belay your partner to the top while enjoying the stunning views of the Sierra's. Walk off is to the left, you can go right but it exposes you to a nearly 200 foot fall if you slip.

Protection

18 bolts, chains at the 3 separate anchors
