DescriptionPITCH 1: 5.10c - 100 feet of fun, steep crack that keeps getting harder as you move upward. The slightly overhanging crux leads to bolted anchors.
PITCH 2: 5.12a - 60 feet of steep to very overhanging finger/hand crack. Fun and Dynamic movement thru the roof.
PITCH 3: 5.10a - Move to the right, climb the steep arete clipping bolts and a few gear placements. Finish thru an overhang to the left to a big ledge with bolted anchors.
LocationRoute starts directly below the huge roof and climbs the thin crack straight towards the roof. Bring a large rack with very small cams, doubles on small and medium cams, and a 3.5 cam to protect the crux of the route.
To descend, Rappel with a single rope to the top of the 2nd Pitch, from here a 2 rope rappel will get you to the ground (Because of the large overhang of the roof, it is recommended doing the 2nd rappel to the ground with 2 ropes, as it can be difficult to access the anchors at the top of Pitch 1 when you are hanging 20 feet away from the wall!)
