Description [Suggest Change]
This is a nice, long moderate with excellent belay stances and fun, varied climbing. It is one of the more continuous lines in the area. An old pin was recently found about 750' up this climb at the bottom of a nice dihedral variation.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route faces northeast, and follows giant, left-facing diherdral for the entire climb. Start at the bottom of the dihedral and get it on. To get down, find bolted anchor at the top of the tower on the south side. A combination of double and single rope rappels will drop you right back to your packs. The rap line is climber's left of route and alternates between bolted stations and natural anchors.
Protection [Suggest Change]
A double set of cams with one #4 Camalot plus nuts. Trad anchors for most belays. Rap off combination of bolts, nuts, and trees for descent.
