Description

This is the route to the immediate right of "polished". 10' of easy face climbing gets you to a ledge where you can choose between two variations. Option 1- Continue straight up into the dihedral, and top out via the small horn (10a). Option 2- From the small ledge head right to the tips crack and follow up (10c/d).

This is a fun route, its always interesting to watch how people try to navigate the horn (we call it the potato chip) on their first attempt. Jun 24, 2016

Protection is in the form of two anchors. Both are hangars only (no rap rings). There is a boulder that offers backup/primary for dihedral and fingers (routes just to the left) that could also be used for horn and polished. If you're climbing horn try to equalize your rigging slightly to riggers left / climbers right. Nov 25, 2013
