Location

About 30 feet Right of Crescent is broken, shallow dihedral that turns into a face then continues up to a 1 foot wide ledge. It’s about 15 feet left of the starting pedestal for “Deer Bait”, Look for lots of bolts…

Description

This might be bare of ice but it’s a fun and worthwhile exercise in drytooling. Start in shallow broken dihedral and go up and slightly Left on blocky ledges. Traverse directly right using thin side-pulls on a fin to gain good holds. Move up and trend left to gain stance on 1 foot wide ledge. Follow features arcing up and right until you are under the bulge. Burl up steep bulge on the left side on good holds and then “Bear Hug” way out right. This is where it gets hard… Look for an impossible-to-find-unless-you-know-where-it-is hold in the ramp above the bulge. Once you are over the bulge and on you feet, the anchors are right there at 11 o’clock.

Protection

12 Quickdraws for bolts. (I went a little Bosch happy...)
