Description

Fun climbing, memorable second pitch, classic old school with not a bolt in sight. Enjoyed myself thoroughly on this one. Nice sunny route, good winter tick.

Location

Attractive crack/corner system to the right of Pine Nuts. Buy a guidebook, fer chrissake!

Protection

Single rack & a couple hexes work fine

You can link this route nicely to Cat in the Hat. You pop out of a tunnel right at the base of p6 on Cat. Mar 20, 2008

The last pitch (as we did it, at least), above the white triangular roof, has tricky pro, and some small stuff like HB offsets or similar small wires would help alot. It's significantly harder than anything getting to that point. It's easy to climb left, below the white roof, and get onto CITH without dealing with the steep headwall.
Handren's book mentions that the crux of the route is the unprotected huecoed face at the very start. Not if you do the headwall.... Mar 31, 2009

Wonderful climb. The start takes good protection in pockets. There is a large white triangular flake on the right about 20' up that is completely detached -- easy to avoid, though. Replaced the crusty cord anchor at the top of the first pitch on 10-29-2013. Oct 31, 2013
