Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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
