After cracking the opening moves up the right side of the shallow dihedral, work up to and through the schist to the crystaline face above. Work up to the flake, and then the steep face (crux) above. Easy climbing leads to an interesting schist spike, and then flakes to the top. Note: Although the block perched to the left of the spike is quite stable, avoid using it. You can easily avoid it.


Starts up the right side of obvious shallow dihedral.


10 bolts. Rappel anchor on top. Single 60m rope gets you down, barely. Check your ends!

Quality crystal surfing with some funky schist down low and up top. A good warm up if your on your way to Deja Vu. Sep 17, 2015
