Description

P1: 5.10a – climb the crack that splits the face to a large ledge.
P2: 5.11a – climb the face and pull the big roof (if you go right instead of directly up the roof it is a letter grade or two easier) (don’t follow the bolts out left as they don’t go anywhere).
P3: 5.10a – climb the face with cracks.
P4: 5.9 – not such a great pitch but it does get you to the ridge.

Location

Starts 9 meters left of where the stairs first hit the wall.

Protection

Bolts with anchors.

DANGER--don't go right. do the direct version. the right hand line is very unstable with large blocks coming off after the routes split and there are always lots of people below on the cat wall. Jan 12, 2010

Great fun. I found the crux to be pretty continuous for 25-30'. Third pitch is fantastic, great airy position, and pretty continuous with a little stinger near the top. Just excellent! Feb 3, 2016

Preparing for a trip out to EPC. Can anyone tell me what the descent is? Also, will a 70m rope do it? Mar 13, 2016

Very fun, third pitch is spectacularly exposed. I found it quite exciting, be prepared for 5.10 climbing with wicked exposure well above (10-15') your last bolt. The crux pitch was indeed sustained and probably a little harder than the other .11a's I did in EPC. Jan 3, 2018
