Access Issue: 2021 seasonal raptor closure (January 15th-August 15th) Details


A rarely traveled Linville gem. This is a great alternative to the Mummy and Daddy on busy weekends, as long as you can deal with all the lichen on the second half of the route. The first two pitches are gold!

P1 - Climb the very obvious dihedral to a small tree (100 ft)
P2 - Continue up the dihedral, eventually busting around to the right of the huge roof. Gear belay above roof (100 ft)
P3 - Climb to the next ledge, belay in trees (50 ft)
P4 - Climb the face directly off of the ledge, then drift through the left-leaning dihedral to another large ledge (90 ft)
P5 - Climb/scramble to the top (50-150 ft)


Hike about five minutes down past the base of the Daddy to a very obvious, long, right-arching dihedral.


All belays and pro are natural or gear, no bolts here!
