Description

Start is the same as West Face route but heads left at the horizontal. The crux is at the two bolts in the headwall. Good pro with a little spice after the two bolts.

Location

Same start as West Face Route which starts in a small corner crack system in the middle of the narrow west face.

Protection

Two bolts standard rack of single pieces.

Fun and pumpy line. Gear is good, bring a light rack and save a .75 inch cam for the horizontal after the two bolts and before the last. The climbing is insanely easy, but the rock is somewhat suspect (I blew off a golf ball sized foothold today)and it would be a long ride. Jan 13, 2010
