Description

Pitch 1: Pass a low roof on the left and climb a flake 45 feet to belay below a small roof to the left of, and slightly higher than, the long, larger rook of Blue Sparks from Hell (5.10).

Pitch 2: Move left around this small overhang, then right around the ends of tow other roofs to a large corner system with a large, grassy ledge and rappel rings.

Pitch 3: Climb the corner (actually the right face of the large corner). Your see a tree and a grungy corner above you. Don't go here. Weave to the left and finish moving left under the large roof that forms the finale of Osprey. Use the same belay tree as Osprey.

Location

Hike the Blue Trail from Cold Air Cave and arrive at the Practice Face. Turn left and follow the cliff for about 100-150 yards. The climbs Osprey and Heroine Hypnosis are just after the point where you make a 4th class scramble up to a high point along the path.

Osprey is on the left, HH is on the right.

Protection

Rap station on p2. No fixed gear but easy to protect.

Currently there are 2 fixed pitons with slings and rings at the top of Pitch 1. These are easily backed up with gear. We did not find a fixed anchor at the top of pitch 2, which was a little bit grungy. The pitch 3 traverse over to Osprey was easy but a bit of a safari. There is a nice newish bolted anchor at the top of Osprey, rap with 2 ropes to reach the ground. Oct 12, 2011

As of 9/15/2013 one of the fixed pins at the top of p1 is totally loose and useless; there is plenty of good gear to back it up, just don't expect to rap comfortably from there. Sep 15, 2013

Climbed it today. There is now only one piton and a fixed nut at the top of pitch 1 (which seemed a bit higher than 45 feet to me..). The belay was easy to back up though. I wasnt able to find any rap rings at what I thought was the top of the 2nd pitch, but it was easy enough to traverse over to the top of Osprey. I did it as two pitches, linking the 2nd and 3rd, as the grassy ledge isnt that long of a traverse from the Osprey bolts. Jul 16, 2017
