Description

A thin, clean flake that starts as a wide, lower-angle layback but thins and steepens into a hand crack.

This is a good route to combine with the routes at Private Idaho and Them for a bunch of 5.9 climbing next to each other.

Location

Located at the left side of the cliff. Look for a gully with a knotted hand line. Go up the gully and trend right to a big fir tree. The climb is in an overlap area with a steep white wall on the right (the Bobcat Cringe). A little to the left is a flared, left-facing chimney below a huge roof.

Rap with 1 rope.

Protection

Standard rack with a couple of 3" pieces and a bigger piece for the start. A #5 C4 works at the beginning or run it out a little and place a #4 higher.

History

The very first route at Lookout Point. The first time there we got to the base by scrambling up the next gully uphill, grabbing some vine maple branches. Perhaps only a year or so later we added the handline to the next gully down, now the standard approach. And the handline, at what, 40 years on, is still solid.
