Description

P1:Past a couple of bolts to a thin, balancey section (10+) to angled ledge then into chimney, which isn't as hard as it looks, past one bolt. Then committ to difficult smearing with nice finger crack (5.11a/b) and perfect rock/pro to a juggy finish. P2: 50 feet of short overhangs and some offwidth (5.10-). Beautiful climbing on P1 crux.

Location

As you are walking through the middle section look to your right for a large (300ft) wall of very nice, angular rock just past a water crossing. BOP is the obvious crack splitting the large wall.

Protection

3 bolts and standard rack plus doubles in .5 and .75

A beautiful line, which, in light of its imposing appearance, protects perfectly with gear, and is supplemented with a bolt wherever protection is either non-existent or would be questionable. I did only the first pitch, per the first ascensionist's recommendation, and couldn't imagine the second being even comparable in quality. The existing pictures come far from doing this line justice.
