This route is a variation of Figure On A Lanscape. Start on Figures.

Pitch 1: At the 4th bolt climb staright up (5.10- R) to the 3 bolt hanging belay, then go straight up on steep face (5.10a R) to a bolt, then run it out again up the steep face (5.10a R) up and right to the ramp/crack on Figures. Belay at the big ledge. (medium nuts)

Pitch 2: Move down and left to a bolt, then face climb (5.9) up to a thin crack that leads to the top (5.10b R). There were two fixed pins placed on the first ascent.


Pro: Thin to 3 inches. Very thin CDs for pitch 2.

Bring your A game for the crack on pitch two. That shit is scary. I backed off and took the bolted line to the left. Nov 20, 2014

On the first ascent we belayed at the 3-bolt hanging belay on Figures,
but the best way to do this section is in one pitch, from the ground all the way up to the big ledge belay on Figures below it's final corner pitch. 70 meter rope recommended.

The last time I saw the late Walt Shipley, he'd just climbed the route. He handed me one of the pitons from the last pitch that he plucked out when he yanked on it! I keep it as a souvenir to remind me of Walt's great spirit and energy. Nov 7, 2008
