This 5 star joy to climb classic is like a well-put together staircase. A bit of a squeeze job on the natural line @ just 3 feet to the right of 2trad4U. Using face holds interspersed with the crack, climb the obvious and easy shallow dihedral straight up to the top. Each step seems to be where you want it with the left hand (roof) variation having an interesting undercling and face moves. The easier, right hand variation heads to the right @ 5 feet below the crux of the left hand variation about 1/2 way up the route. Just dance to the right and up small ledges before rejoining the route. Clip the black sling on the medium fir growing on the route, then finish straight up the remining 20 feet to the rappel point which is off of the large fir tree on the very top.


Medium and large wired stoppers with a few cams to 1-1/2". include a green alien or yellow TCU as well. A set of Hybrid Aliens, although not necessary, will place very well.

So, did this yesterday (in tennis shoes), and it felt around 5.7, easily protected. If you long sling the gear, there is very little rope drag. Aug 15, 2015

Not sure why the PRC guidebook calls this a 5-star climb. Nothing about it seemed
Classic to me. In fact, I thought I was on a different route the entire time until confirming I was in the right spot from the beta pictures on here. I'd skip this one. May 7, 2017
