DescriptionThis is an alternate, and easier, start to Ears To You. It offers fun, well-protected face climbing and a direct passage to the "Ear".
Start with bouldery moves on good edges in flakey rock. Although the surrounding rock is a bit chossy the holds are solid horizontal intrusions (iron-diorite?) and bomber. Place a good small cam and climb up to improving rock via intriguing moves. Another small cam placement in an overlap protects face moves that lead to a bolt. Clip the bolt and move up to the base of the "Ear". Finish on Ears To You.
