Description

Steep! is probably the best way to describe this route.

Route starts up the vague arete to the technical crux of the route at the first bolt, a long reach right from a sidepull to a crimp. Continue up utilizing some good holds in the crack to the second bolt. From here trend right on mostly jugs while negotiating some smaller crimps. A decent rest can be obtained below the roof. Head out the roof on great jugs to a heartbreaking redpoint crux just below the chains.

3 Stars for the climbing, 1 star for the rock quality. While nothing came off, it felt like a few holds were about to. In particular the rest crimp below the roof felt a little shaky.

Location

Route #2 on the photo topo. The base of this route gets washed out after heavy rains.

Protection

8? Bolts to Anchors, currently has three fixes draws which greatly helps the cleaning process.

The rest hold below the roof is now completely gone, leaving a small crimp in place of it. The route is now more sustained with no great rests on it. Feb 22, 2010

I think I broke A little bit off the rest hold before the really steep climbing- don't think it made it any harder though. Major pump factor on this route! Jul 25, 2009
