Wonderful trad climbing with a blocky corner, a fantastic splitter and an ending that ain't over till that large woman sings.

P1 Climb the blocky corner to a large ledge and move left to belay.

P2 Move up the fantastic splitter, exiting right through a steep notch. Double bolt anchor.


Located about midways down lower Hawksbill at a left facing corner.


Tcu's, stoppers, camalots to gold.


It's possible to lead this in a single pitch as well. At least that way you won't have to make a belay and burn a bunch of gear. On the down side you're belayer might not be able to see you. I don't remember it being to hard to get good gear off the ledge. Jul 18, 2012

If you belay at P1, a #3 and #4 camalot would be great for the belay, otherwise you will burn a bunch of TCU's. Jul 13, 2010
