Description

If you enjoy moderate granite slab climbing, you'll love this obscure gem! There is an excellent topo of the route in Collins & White's Lander Rock guide. The climbing is generally moderate with some more difficult (5.9) slab climbing coming on the 4th and 5th pitches. Descend by walking off to the west down the Cowboy Route. (This could be very dangerous if wet!)

Location

This is an excellent slab route which starts near the lowest point of the dome, down and left of the tree route. The start can be identified by a large, thin, left-pointing flake with bolts to it's left.

Protection

A rack of draws will protect most of the climbing, supplemented by a few wires and cams up to #2 camalot for belays and the occasional placement. Although bolted, be prepared for longer run-outs in some places. A 60 meter rope is recommended.

This is a great route. A classic smearing/friction exercise with some pretty good lead-outs. I believe Richard Collins and his lady put this one up, I think before Venus and Mars and some of those were done. Jul 1, 2010
this is a super good route, did it in 2003 while going to school at UW, on the last pitch there is a straight up .11 variation and .10 variation going right, both are excellent face routes with adequate pro. Nov 14, 2009
