Description

Start by rapping down 180 feet off of a BFT or a 2 bolt anchor to a small ledge, and build a belay. The route starts up a moderate left facing dihedral with a hand crack and a few face moves here and there with good movement qualities on the entire climb. It is a little dirty and loose in a few spots, but it is worth doing. The crux is about 2/3 of the way up and the grade remains consistent for the entire route.

Location

The 2 bolt chained anchor for this route is located about 15 yards south of The Great Escape anchors.

Protection

2-60 meter ropes, stoppers, double cams from 3/8"-3", 15-24" runners, and a cordellette.
