Description

This route climbs to the regional high point. Locate the steep face with a large water groove. Start out on the right by climbing a short bolted arete. Traverse left at the bulge then up into the water groove. Follow the groove to the summit. This is a good stepping stone route for 5.8 leaders. Enjoy the views.

Location

One must zag in from the west to the east up a series of ramps and ledges on the south face (facing the gravel road) to reach this route. The route is on the regional high point and climbs into a prominent water groove starting on the arete on the right side of the formation.

Protection

Eight Bolts; Bolted Anchor; Bolts were replaced in 2006 with Hilti Stainless Steel 3/8" x 3 3/4" Bolts
