Description

This is a left-facing off-width crack that provides amazing endurance driven climbing.

Pitch 1: 55 meters of 5.8 climbing.

Pitch 2: 40 meters of 5.10 off-width. This is, for good reason, the crux of the route. Pull through the roof with a nice fist jam and make your way up the crack.

Pitch 3: 30 meters of 5.7 chimney climbing.

Pitch 4: 20 meters of 5.6 climbing and a scramble to the top.

Each anchor is bolted with beautiful American Death Triangles.
There are bolted anchors everywhere, pick one! I always bring an extra rope to make the raps quicker. However, you can make it to the bottom, after a few more raps, with a single 60 meter.

Location

200 meters North of the "Grand Slab" you will see the natural line. It is a left facing off-width crack.

Protection

You could manage this climb with a single set of cams, but I recommend bringing an extra #3. There are bolted anchors everywhere.

This thing was pretty hard, but super solid rock and clean.

This is one long jam-fest. Followers can layback a good deal of it, but the leader needs to be solid at hand-fist and slightly larger off width jamming.

I definitely couldn't have led the route when I climbed it, I just followed, but it would be a really fun lead if it was in my ability range.

The anchors are all brand new as of 2016, double bolts with a real chain and standard rap rings on some of the ones that are commonly rappeled off from. No more american death triangles! Intermediate bolts along the route are also new. Oct 10, 2016
