Remember to fill out a wilderness permit, even if climbing for the day! Details


Thin edges with high feet to start gain better holds and a hard to see hueco around the arete. Make an easy mantle to cap it off and descend off the backside.

Given V4 in the bouldering guide but it seems much easier than that.


Right side of the south face.


pad, spotter


The line that James showed me started in the middle of the face to the left of the arete and went straight up to about midway, then traversed right about 6ft to the arete. He suggested v4 for the rating. Cool looking line! Jul 13, 2009

Yes his start a little to the left looks more sustained, although not V4, but the line described here is an obvious start. Jul 14, 2009

The line described here is the most obvious line on that face although it doesn't seem to fit the description of the guidebook. The line described here feels comparable to other v3 at tram although its more or less one hard move.
!!Please note as of July 16th 2011, the juggy side pull is very loose. If it breaks it may be a fairly large piece and could hurt!! Jul 17, 2011

I can see where it can feel easier than a v4, but after doing a few different v4s on the same day, it feels like a tram v4. Jul 10, 2012

Nds was correct. It was a big hold, and yes it hurt when it ripped. Sorry I'm a fatty. Flake is gone as of 4/3/16 Apr 3, 2016
