Description

This route climbs an obtuse corner up the awesome orange face of E-Ave. Start to the left of the corner and boulder through the overhang past a pin to get establlished on the face. Continue up on thin moves and patina edges - very exciting! There's a bolt at about 60 feet, then continue up in the scoop until the top of the rock is reached. I awkwardly traversed/downclimbed to the anchors that are for the bolted routes on the face, I'm not sure this is the best way to descend, post up if anyone knows otherwise.

Protection

Adequate pro, bring a supply of thin nuts and smaller cams.

Lively, healthy wasp colony living at mid height in crack as of 10/16/17. Otherwise, really rad Oct 16, 2017

The gear is sinker. I'd say the upper bolt could be removed safely. I'd be hesitant to add a bolt down low though. The books call it 12a but I'm curious of what Todd Skimmer thought. Jun 14, 2017

If any bolt work was done, I would vote replacing the lower pin with a bolt and removing the upper bolt. There is adequate small gear around that bolt of similar character to the rest of the route so it felt unnecessary. Jun 2, 2017

Great route! I'd vote to replace the pin with a bolt. May 16, 2016

One of the best routes! And the pro is smaller, but very solid. After leading it I set up an anchor in the crack at the top to TR and then the last cleaned up and rapped the anchor of Young Frank. Jun 25, 2013
