Description

A classic and isolated line. Work your way up the first 15 ft of vegetation and choss to a stance beneath the small but prominent roof split by a laser-cut crack. From here on out, the rock is good quality. Pull up to the roof on jugs and muscle your way over the lip on off-finger jams.

This crux rattly-finger section lasts a few body lengths before you sink a thank god hand jam. From here, fun climbing w excellent views leads a long, enjoyable ways to the top. Scramble your way up and left to the rap station at a tree. Two ropes to rap.

Location

From the base of Mañana (ref. Alexey's approach description for the area), walk left along the base of the wall a good ways (+/- 15 minutes). You will pass the obvious lines of Ying-Yang, Mental Block, and the Tilted Mitten. From the Tilted Mitten proceed another 1,000 ft, per Reid. 

To get to the start of Vanishing Point, you will circle under and east around a small buttress to turn back west and ascend a steep and grassy embankment with a clear and well worn climber's trail. Vanishing Point is the attractive off-fingers splitter in the center of the face (next to a small tree) that splits a roof 25 feet up. 15 feet of vegetated choss lead to this roof. 

Note that there is another striking finger-sized splitter a ways to the left of Vanishing Point, near an arete - a much harder and headier affair, by the look of it. Make sure you pick the right line!

Protection

To 2.5", reco extra hand sizes. Rap anchor is slings around a tree - smart to bring webbing to replace if needed.
