Description

This is an amazing and long line with great technical slab movement and some spice. Start below the right facing flake with two bolts on the flake. Slab up some sloped ledges to two adjacent right facing flakes that take gear. Plug gear and make some difficult moves up and left to gain the crystal seam below the flake. Plug some big gear in the solution hole and start up onto the flake. Make moves on the flake while clipping bolts (crux). Finish the flake and trend up and right to a large eyebrow. Continue pulling straight up above the eyebrow and follow large features out right. Once you get close to the bolt start trending left to the bolt. Follow good eyebrows slightly up and left, then up and right to the overlap. Pull the overlap and continue another 15' to the bolts.

For the second pitch continue up and right between vertical edges for a short distance. Walk off to the right. Rarely done and doesn't take much gear.

Location

To the right and up the hill from where the trail meets the wall. Look for the obvious flake with two bolts about 30' up. Rappel with two ropes from bolts at the top.

Protection

TCU's, tri-cams, .3-1 Camalots, and a 4 or 5 camalot for the solution hole. Lots of long runners and double ropes are a good option. 2 bolts to a fixed anchor.
