Description

A great 2 pitch route with easy access. Once on top of the Narrows east rim, walk until you see a 5th class gully with two shiny bolts WITH rap rings. Fix a line and rap 200ft to the talus below. Turn left, and scramble down and left towards the river until you can see the obvious spliter finger crack 20 ft up on the first pitch.

P1 climb the obvious splitter (10c) to a 2 bolt belay under a roof

p2 step left into hand to fist crack in a left facing dihederal, follow this corner up to a large ledge with a 2 bolt belay. Belay here or continue up another 55ft up the right facing dihederal to the rim. Belay from another 2 bolt anchor on the rim.

Location

To the right of the gully descent near the slab route.

Protection

standard rack to #4 camalot

The new variation is 10a. It has great pro and perfect splitter hands (5.9) to a nice fingers corner (10a) to the top. Just don't miss the left hand switch on the 2nd pitch (at a good stance on the middle column). It's a short section of OW with hands in the back. It has a single bolt to a two bolt anchor just below the small roof (start of the splitter). There is a sling to grab on the anchor to help you get to it. May 9, 2015
