Description

Good climbing. Climb up and left to a flake. Above the flake follow four bolts onto easier knob and face climbing above. Stay right of the second pitch of Deception Pillar.

Location

Begin the route from a ledge 40' up Short Story (scrambling).

Protection

Bolts. Gear for first belay and possibly the flake at the start of the pitch. Belay at tree.

Fun cranking Crux between bolt 1 and 2, then an interesting traverse up and left. Pretty fun run-out after the last bolt on cool features.

Placed one cam for the easy 5.6 start and one gray BD at the top to back up the puny tree anchor. Sep 24, 2017
