Description

The best 'easy' route in the area, and a great if not a tad long warm-up. Be sure to have a 70m rope for this one.

A strenuous start leads to a long, varied, enjoyable climb through pockets, thin edges, overhangs, and even some crack climbing up to the anchors. No distinct crux, but several spots that will make you pause and think -- and the length could test your endurance.

This is the better of the two 5's (French) in the area, though the other is easier at 5.9 (All the King's Horses).

Location

This route lies 1 route left of the point where the trail from below hits the North Face, and just right of Poser's Lonely Reunion.

Protection

14 or 15 bolts + 2 bolt fixed chain anchor. Top rope-able with a long rope.

If you don't have enough draws, get them back early. I backcleaned on the slightly overhanging part in the middle, not a good idea. Jul 21, 2014
