Two bolts protect the lower crack (5.9+), hard face climbing starts after the ledge with well placed bolts and no real runout. Crimpy, finger pockets down low on this face, crux is at the top with the overhanging bulge at last bolt.


Upslope from The Monk and left of Pedrick's Chimney and the 5.8 Pockets Route. A clear line of bolts at the leftmost (east) extent of Gargoyle Wall. Two bolts (non-rappable) at top. Fresh webbing placed early Dec. 09, allowing the route to be rapped. Otherwise, traverse to eye-bolt to descend Pedrick's.


11 bolts, plus ability to protect lowermost crack with gear where the lowest bolt hanger was removed. (Someone placed a knotted chord there in early Dec. '09, which can be clipped if the first bolt is too high).

Someone stole the first hanger...please return it to me, has sentimental value. Oct 10, 2010

Bottom easier section of route is pretty good. However once to the ledge the rock gets chausy. A friend took a fall because the flakes break off so easily. There is a carabiner in the bolt just above the ledge, that bolt will spin and wobble a bit. Also you may find my mad rock quickdraw in the bolt just above that, bailed on the route so its still there. I will say that it rained the day before and that could have caused the loose rock.
