DescriptionIf only that damn 5.6 offwidth weren't the first pitch, this would be a 4-star route!! I jest, I jest,...or do I?
This route starts roughly where the approach trail from the talus field meets the cliff at the far right end.
Pitch 1: 5.6 Climb the offwidth crack with a chockstone in it at about mid-height to a sloping ledge in a large, right-facing corner. Belay on gear in the corner. 40 feet
Pitch 2: 5.8 Layback and stem your way up the large offwidth crack. Strenuous at first, but it eases up quite a bit until you reach the next ledge at 35 feet. Belay on the ledge with gear (it is possible to combine the 1st and 2nd pitches).
Pitch 3: 5.9 Continue up the corner until you are nearly at the apex of the corner, then make a surprisingly difficult balance move right to the arete. Continue up to the top, and then off to the right to belay at a sizeable tree. 50 feet.
Rappel with two ropes to the ground.
LocationThis route starts in a wide, overhanging crack (that is surprisingly only 5.6) roughly where the approach trail from the talus field meets the cliff at the far right end.
