Description

Looks so great from the bottom, but once you pull the (quite fun) roof at 10a it's really just runout 5.6/7 low-angle face on poor-quality rock.

Nice view though, but nothing you wouldn't get anywhere else on The Chief.

Location

The first route you pass as you walk out onto the ledge. You should be able to see two bolts from the bottom, quite closely spaced, protecting the roof that you pull in the first section.

Protection

Six bolts with a fixed anchor at the top. You can walk off.

I had a different experience on this route than the submitter. I thought it was nice, reasonably protected climbing in a good position. I don't remember it being runout at all, and don't believe it gets a 'ghost' in the guide book. Aug 14, 2015
