Description

This route is a great multi-pitch traverse across the backside of Main Dome. Crosses several other popular routes, so you may have to wait or ask permission to cross other parties if its a busy day. This climb can definitely be a route finding challenge past P3 due to the sea of bolts on Main Dome.

P1-3 can be done as a standalone, topping out on several different climbs or rapping off of Easier Than It Looks anchors with a single 60m rope.

P1 (~30m): Climb the face using the arete formed by the right facing dihedral (4 bolts) to a set of anchors.

P2 (~30m): Traverse up and right across the top of the overlap (6 bolts) to a set of anchors.

P3 (~30m): Traverse across easy terrain to a grassy ledge (no bolts) with 2 sets of anchors (left is Easier Than It Looks, right is Mark Of The Beast).

P4: Continue traversing the upper shield using bolts on existing routes following a dike that angles up (guidebook says 3 bolts, 2 anchors).

P5: Angle up and right through a dish and a bulge (guidebook says 2 bolts).

Location

Starts on the far left side of Devil's Slide. Look for a large, arching right facing dihedral that is approximately 150' to the left of Easier Than It Looks. The climb starts on top of the dihedral, immediately to the left.

Protection

Bolts and 2 bolt anchors.
