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.


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.


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.


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.
