dihedral to crack to 1st anchor then slabby techy arete to 2nd. couple problems here and there to figure out but nothing too cruxy. The pitches can be safely linked with a 60m, in which case there's a sixth bolt at the base of p2, to avoid having to clip the p1 anchor with a extended draw.


the ice plant wall is across from the raven wall hike up and you'll find this climb in the only corner of the ice plant. again dihedral start to a crack.


9 bolts to 1st set of anchors (5.9) 5 more to the second set (10c)

With drag is pretty much exactly 100ft to second set of anchors. Definitely worth linking the pitches. The second pitch is a nice change of pace from typical ten sleep climbing. Jul 31, 2017

The upper-section is superb thought-provoking climbing on great stone! Sep 6, 2016

Crack was fun; layback with solid feet and many holds/feet outside crack - never really required to jam with more than one extremity. Upper pitch/arete was definitely slabby and difficult to read; less enjoyable. Aug 11, 2015

Super cool climb. Corner -> splitter on a face -> arete. Awesome! Jul 8, 2013

First pitch is four star quality--despite that slippery black buttery start. The extension isn't nearly as fun, but well worth doing. And yah, just to be clear, both the book AND this post on MP under report the number of bolts to the first anchor by one.

Number nine...........number nine.........number nine....... Sep 30, 2011

Its funny climbing these crack routes at tensleep and seeing the tick marks and chalk on the tiny crimps beside the perfect hand crack... Jul 27, 2011

9 lead bolts to first set of anchors, which is out of the crack to the right. Jul 27, 2010
The first pitch of this route is nothing but pure fun. The second pitch might mess with your head at first, but just go for it! I'd recommend having your belayer tie a knot at the end of the rope, this beast is long. Apr 7, 2009
