Description

The classic moderate on the North Side.

The first bolt is fairly high up there, and reaching it may be a bit unnerving for a shaky 5.9 leader. After clipping it, enjoy six more bolts of sustained edging and pocket pulling, with no obvious crux.

Location

The second bolted route from the left on the North side.

Protection

7 bolts to chains. It should be possible to top-rope.

First and second bolts are very spaced out. Easy to make a top rope anchor five feet back from the ledge to ease the top belay with a couple hand sized cams and some webbing if you want to belay from above without hanging from the chains. Aug 16, 2013

Great climb, it really cool to see the tram go by and see a bunch of tourists stair. The crux is the final bit over the roof. Apr 6, 2017

there is a good 0.5 and 0.75 placement before the first bolt, which made the start feel a lot more secure.

the dolomite is awweessoommee and friction-y

the climbing felt generally wonderful, but as a shorter person there were moments where I felt like the bolts were bolted without the shorter in mind AND

for short folks, the final move to the chains felt like a V3 boulder problem, not 5.9. I could see if one were a bit taller how it would be very straightforward though...upside? you can pull through the move on a kindly placed bolt right to the chains! Aug 5, 2017
