Description

An easy multi pitch with great rock and good belay stances. The pitches are fairly short and interrupted by many ledges. You can link pitches 2 and 3 but the rope drags a little. The rock quality deteriorates a bit on the last pitch.

Location

One of the right-most routes on the lower tier of Layer Cake; starts on a ledge above the trees.

Descent

Walk off north (recommended), or rappel the route with a single rope. Rappelling the last 2 pitches can be combined with a 70 meter rope.

Come into Mountainworks for beta

Pitch One 5.4: 5 Bolts plus ring anchors.
Pitch Two 5.7: 2 Bolts plus ring anchors.
Pitch Three 5.7: 6 Bolts plus ring anchors.
Pitch Four 5.9: 7 Bolts plus ring anchors.

Hey I found some gear in the bushes on 10/21 at the base of the multi-pitch here. If any one lost gear hit me up and tell me what your missing so I can get your stuff back to you. Oct 23, 2011

Did this one again today, this time doing the original (not Intimidator) third pitch plus the fourth pitch. Fun! I took my roommate on it as his first multipitch route and he just about peed his pants following the exposed and steep fourth pitch. I'll forever razz him for squeaking: "Hey Tristan, take it tight here. Tight!! Are uh... are you sure you've got me? I said TIGHT!!!" It was beautiful. But he was smiling the whole way up the route. Really fun, hard moves on that last pitch, but it's a great way to end it.

Doing it again, I'd probably link pitches 2 and 3. 2 is just so short...

I really like this route.

(And in response to the above post... I've soloed the first two pitches and would NOT recommend them. Go find some clean limestone or granite instead...) Aug 17, 2009
Great intro to multipitch climbing. It'll take quite a lot of traffic before all the pitches clean up but the pitches are short. You definitely want some pretty long runners on this route because the rope drag can get pretty hardcore! I just got back from free soloing the first 3 pitches of Ledgarithm and then finished off with The Intimidator (the 10a) at the end. If you're into free soloing then I highly recommend this route! peace! Jul 14, 2009

The fourth pitch isn't bad. Some fun moves near the start (especially exciting with water running down it). Jan 23, 2009

Fun route, worth doing. Would be a great first multipitch route. The second pitch is super short and there's a pretty good distance between the last bolt and the anchors at the start of the next pitch. You would have to uncoordinated beyond belief to fall there, though. It's really easy climbing.

The Intimidator variation on pitch 3 is outstanding. Highly recommended. Jul 24, 2008
