Description

P1: Start on a nice hand/finger crack just left of a giant right facing corner eventually climbing the cracks on the arete formed by the corner (5.7) to a two bolt belay.

P2: Friction up past a couple new bolts left of a large, bushy gully. Some small runouts exists on easier ground as do some gear placements. Continue up to a large ledge with a two bolt anchor.

P3: Two options. Option 1: Follow the right-leaning, finger crack up to a small bulge. Pull the bulge, trend right up a slab with a bolt and over another small bulge to a two bolt anchor (What's Up 5.10a) Option 2: Head up and left off the ledge into a giant flake system. Stem and lieback up it until reaching a two bolt anchor (Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, 5.8). This route needs some bushes cleaned off it but is still pretty fun.

Location

Look for the giant, right-facing corner about 250 feet [left] of the Carter Classic. Rap the route with 2 ropes.

Thanks, Clayton, for the correction!

Protection

Mixed. Bring full rack to #3 Camalot and doubles of smaller gear.

Location of this route is wrong. It is LEFT of Carter Classic, not right. Identify the climb from the picture on here with the dude leading the right-angling cracks. (It is not the bolt line immediately left of Carter Classic.)

First pitch was cool. Second pitch is really short and so-so. Third pitch has a fun move on it. Good route if Carter Classic is a traffic jam. May 29, 2012
