DescriptionReally good climbing. The first pitch, mostly drytooling, is pumpy and technical M9, and the second icier pitch can be anything. It was really fat when we did it. The sun hadn't come out in 5 days and, but as soon as it did the whole rig fell down. This route is south facing and on dark rock. The first pitch can be worked on safely, but wait for some shady or cold days.
LocationLocated in the middle of the clean, steep wall on the right flank of the Painted Wall. 200 yards right of Way in The Wilderness. Look for the bolts going up to an enormous icicle. Rap off a tree right of the route, 200'.
