Description

Start at the crack on the left side of the wall. Climb approx 30’ to where the crack widens. Clip a bolt and continue up to a pair of cracks. Climb either crack (you’ll find 1.5-2” gear in the left one). After arriving at a ledge, continue on the face to the right of the chimney, clipping two more bolts and placing gear. Finish at a two bolt anchor.

Nicer route than it looks, though loose stuff mid way adds spice to avoid. Can be well protected w/o the bolts, though, esp. if taking a big cam from El Throay to use down low. Nov 8, 2009

kind of rough around the edges still. I wandered left into the corner and got rewarded with a basketball that crashed down on the midway ledge. Feb 7, 2010

Roman - I think I may have heard that rock while Geir and I were just south of you on Tornado in Peril...it sounded quite large. Glad you are ok. Feb 8, 2010
Not too shabby! The loosest of loose was on the very left of this baby, so watch out! Nov 27, 2010

Agree, it climbs better than it looks, once you battle the folliage at the start. :) Mellow climbing for first half to a short, fun, very well protected crux at the double cracks then a 5.8-ish face and bulge section to the top. Dec 3, 2012

Good fun route, Can use a lot of cleaning, be super careful specially on the middle section. Tons of loose rock.
I agree with Arjun, no need for bolts.
The rap needs a longer chain, specially the bolt on the left. Jan 20, 2013
