This is Hudak's first climb ever!

Stem and/or chimney the unusual, mica-laden rock leading to a flared splitter and OW pod. This route will expand your geologic horizons....

Hidden jugs keep the climbing moderate until you reach the upper OW. Thrutch up through pegmatite and mica until you can pull over a small roof to belay. You'll either be nostalgic for the Black Canyon or reminded why you don't like climbing there....

Follow the best looking option on the second pitch or walk off to the right. We walked off but recommend climbing up to the top before walking right.

This may be on private property.


This is immediately left of Salem. Most parties will opt to scramble up 10 feet to a ledge to rope up.


A standard rack up to a BD #4. The upper section still needs some brushing.
