DescriptionThe east face of Ne'er-do-well offers a low-commitment outing only 15 minutes from camp at Little Baron Lake with some good climbing.
Pitch 1: Follow a right-trending crack about 40' uphill from the most obvious diagonal crack. Finish up a left-facing dihedral to a small ledge with two trees. 5.7 180'
Pitch 2: Continue up the right-leaning thin crack past two small bulges and wander up and right on easier face to ledges below the main corner system. 5.9 215'
Pitch 3: Follow this major corner system up intermittent cracks and corners to a brushy belay shelf. 5.8 200'
Pitch 4: A right-leaning flaring chimney to the major ledge which bisects the entire face at about 4/5 height. 5.8 50'
Pitch 5: This wild pitch makes the route! Start up a blocky corner to a short awkward chimney. Continue up a clean, splitter fistcrack (5.10) to an alcove. Exit the alcove via a strenuous footless hand traverse into another fistcrack to a short chimney. 5.11a 215'
500' of 3rd and 4th class scrambling up slabs and blocks lead to the unique chockstone summit.
