Description

This route has a tricky start up a thin seam on the right of short sloping buttress. When high enough, traverse left over the buttress into a crack/shallow right facing corner and follow this up past an off-width section. Continue on to the face while clipping a pin and bolt on the way to the top anchors.

The direct start involves a v2 move off the ground and then into 5.8 climbing. This route took me 3 ground up attemps before it went. Has pitons, bolts and an anchor on a ledge. Nov 20, 2010

Note that the Portland Rock Climbs guide book has this route identified on the topo incorrectly. It places this route one crack to the right of where the line actually exists. May 22, 2015

The direct start left of the FA line that involves a boulder move makes much more sense. It protects well with a small offset nut at the first roof/bulge and small cam above that. Apr 18, 2016

Fun route that's worth doing. Around a 5.8 without the direct start, probably a 5.9 with it.

I spent a while up on this route doing yardwork. Removed quite a few plants that had found a home in the crack system, and a few briers from the anchor area. It's in good condition right now so go hop on it! Jul 1, 2018
