Description [Suggest Change]

  • *This route is 110' long, use a 70m rope or two ropes to get back down, even then you need to watch the ends carefully.

The route left of the obvious dihedral (Shine On). Climbs a left-diagonaling crack to a roof and heads up to a hollow pillar through some slightly grainy rock. Climb above the pillar into a groove/crack and go straight up a clean face past bolts and gear to a two bolt anchor with chains and lowering biners.

Not quite the caliber of its neighbors to the right, but still very good.

This is an excellent addition to the wall. Great climbing in the beginning and the end with a short section of less classic climbing in the middle. Maybe a little heavy cleaning would make this a four star route too. Then again the hollow flakes at mid height do add some character. Aug 24, 2009
