Description

Start to the right of the wide, right-slanting crack. Parallel the crack on small holds, working up and right through the crux to top out on a small pillar. Walk across the gully to a headwall. The psychological crux comes while stepping out into the exposure of the headwall, protected by the fourth bolt. Continue up over easier ground to the anchor, sheared with Blue Bayou. Rappel to descend.

Location

Starts on the East face, farthest bolt line to the right; finishes around the corner on the north face.

Protection

6 bolts, bolted anchor

Surprised by not reading any descriptions and just heading off for a warm up. Crossing over to the formation across the way is contrived. The neighboring route to the right is near the same (yet different bolt line) did we really need that extra 12' of a unique start?

The likelihood of doing this route a second time is slim. Jul 10, 2017

An okay route that wanders all over the place with bolts in odd locations - chossaneering at it's best. Oct 13, 2011
