This 2 pitch route is located on the large, west facing crag between the Corral and Blazing Saddles. It's marked by a large,low roof and 2 horizontal cracks halfway up. Pitch 1: Climb the obvious left slanting crack/groove. 1 bolt protects the entry move(crux). Poor protection, but easier climbing above. Belay in a thin crack just below the first horizontal, 5.10R 70 ft. Pitch 2: Big dyno and mantle straight up the headwall past 2 bolts. Wander up to the summit, 5.10 60 ft.
3 bolts, tiny to 2.5" gear.
