DescriptionA fun, four or five pitch route featuring a mix of moderate crack and slab climbing. All anchors are fixed.
P1 (10a) 35m - Up the long crack system ending up a short, fine splitter.
P2 (5.7) 15m - Can be linked with P1. Up a short 5.7 crack and then traverse right to a sweet belay atop a chopped tree.
P3 (5.9+/5.10-) 20m - The first ascenionists originally had placed 4 bolts of this pitch, but due to the availability of gear, removed all but one of them. The are certainly some hand size cams available, but take care placing them perfectly as the crack is flaring. I placed two #3 camalots on the way to the bolt.
P4 (5.8) 20m I linked this one with P3. Up a short corner and then past a handful of bolts.
P5 (5.9) 25m Low angle slab padding.
Topo is available (2010):
See this thread for information about the route, topo, and a discussion of the bolt removal.
