Description

Look for the chains atop the first pitch. 60 meter rope is adequate.
p1 Begin in a small corner and climb a short handcrack to easier climbing and chains up and right
p2 Climb up and mostly traverse right about 20 feet to a sloping ledge. Climb a up a crack 5.9 (crux move) to a runout groove like formation to a nice ledge with chains.
p3 Great pitch. Climb the corner up to a roof with chains above the roof.

Location

Rappel from chains. From the top of pitch two rappel straight down to independant rap anchors.

Protection

Bring some long runners for the second pitch traverse. Gear to 4 inches.

First two pitches are nothing special, but the final pitch makes it worth your while. Jun 9, 2011

trundled the death block half way up the third pitch yesterday. Took a very light push to pull off around 2 cu ft of rock. Scary. Jul 11, 2015

AWESOME third pitch, the first is fairly straightforward, and the third is awesome with a very exposed hanging belay above a roof for the finish. the second though is a short smidge of fifth class above the anchor to a ledge where you can either place pro to protect the second, or traverse right and place pro to protect the leader, but doing both results in a big ol Z in the rope,and the leader fall starting into the real climbing of the second pitch would be gnarly. totally worth it for that third pitch though. Also, I would have graded it 5.8 maybe with an R definitely didn't think any climbing was harder than 5.8 but that second pitch felt serious for me. There is/was a loose block in the second crack you traverse past on pitch 2. If you encounter dirty rock and pigeon shit you are in the wrong crack. Feb 10, 2016
