Description

Climbs up one of the prettiest walls in blue mounds with purple rock and bright yellow lichen. The crux is low. It's a shame this climb isn't longer or it would be an area classic.

Location

On the south side of the buttress (walk partway up the gully to access). Climbs the obvious crack with yellow lichen all over the wall.

Protection

Standard blue mounds, long webbing for TR. As for the lead I didn't really pay attention (was on TR), there are definitely placements low but I don't remember up high.

The gear was despairate. Felt harder than the rating. Used small stuff, nothing bigger than a .5, also bring some small stoppers. Apr 2, 2011
