Description

Pitch 1: Climb the arete up to a high bolt and contiue up to the base of a sweeping crack or begin the climb in the corner on the left using the small crack in the wall for gear. Either way, once at the headwall climb to a comfortable stance and stand in a right sweeping, arching crack the starts horizontally. Follow the crack proper all the way up to a set of anchors. (115 feet)

Pitch 2: Lean right off the anchor and follow a double crack system to a great stance and chain anchor. (65 feet)

This route was cleaned out by Gregg, Clay and Dallen.

Location

This Route starts in/on the corner just west of Zesty. Climb the arete proper to a bolt and continue up until you reach the base of the swooping crack or follow the left-side corner up and step on the shelf 50 feet up.

Protection

Standard rack -- nuts, tcu's through 3.5 or 4 BD cam. There are a total of 3 sets and chain anchors for the rap. Can be done with a 60 M rope.

Pitch one can be done from the ground and back using a 70m rope only. If you do this Watch Your Ends as a 70m will just barely get you back to the belay.
