Description

Steep crack climbing followed by an off-vertical technical face above.

Pitch 1 (5.9): Climb up to the lone bolt, and make the crux move across the face to the crack (protection) below the notch in the overhang. Pull through the overhang, on large features, and follow the line of weakness up to the two bolt belay.

Pitch 2 (5.10a): From the belay, move right, clip the bolt and then traverse under the bolt to the crack system. Climb the crack until it narrows off, and jog right past the "hollow sounding Tombstone flake" (Lawyer and Haas) and continue up the crack to a bulge with a pin. Pull through the bulge (crux) to a small stance and follow the crack to a bolt and continue face climbing, jogging right after the crack system runs out. Continue trending up and right, past two horizontals (poor pro) & some pockets, to the top.

Location

Start: Where the approach trail meets the main cliff. Look up about 10-15 feet for the lone bolt on the left side of the cliff before it becomes progressively dirtier.
Descent: Two rappels with a 60m rope.

Protection

Pitch 1: One bolt, two bolt anchor
Pitch 2: Two bolts, one pin, fixed anchor on a tree at top.
Single rack to 3".
