Description

A great 2 pitch line that can be done in one if you have a 60m.

P1- Tricky start (for a shorter person) leads to an excellent hand and fist crack (easier). Finishes at a two-bolt belay anchor. 5.8

P2- Climb a slabby dihedral protected by three bolts (you can add gear too). This is the crux of the route. Some fun stemming. (A 5.9+ goes right.) Then traverse left on a much easier hand crack. Bolted anchor.

Location

In the center of the main crag. Left of leap of faith, Obvious hand crack...

Protection

Gear to 3.5 camalot for the first pitch.

You can sew up the crack of the first pitch with all kinds of gear. Also, if you want some extra insurance for the hard move from the ground, thread a sling behind the rectangle block and use that as your first pro. Jul 23, 2017

P2 is not to be missed! Cool moves and an awesome belay seat. It was nice to have a small cam between the first and second bolts. Jul 13, 2016

I love this route as a linked route (2 pitches linked as 1). Single rack is fine with a 60 meter, though it'll take 2 raps to get down. Goes at 5.9 if you climb both pitches Oct 7, 2015

Leavenworth guidebook calls it a 5.8, however, opening sequence is pretty stout. The rest of the climb is a series of perfect jams, and a crack that takes pieces well. Crux of the first pitch happens after 4 or so pieces. Great stuff! May 6, 2013
The first pitch is Classic! May 21, 2012
