Description

This route is to the left of Resurrection and uphill slightly. P1 5.10 Yang: 100' approx. Starts in great jam crack then widens for the rest of the way. Gear & 5 bolts. At the top after roof you will go up left onto large ledge to find anchor. Step around corner to left of anchor to see P2: 5.9 Yin: 90' approx. You can leave the big gear at this anchor (largest needed is #4). At top of P2 anchor, you can scramble above to top out. Two raps with 70m, though a 60m *probably* will work. Rap off P2 anchors to top of P1, then rap P1 directly down from P1 anchors.

Location

See pic-If you are looking at the chimney of resurrection, just look to the left of that route for the next wide looking crack. You cross the creek, just balance up a log and scramble up hill a little. The crack that gets wide is unmistakable.

Protection

P1: Small to .5 size cams, two #2, one #3, two #6's, and one Big Bro. P2: Standard-#4...
Draws & slings.

Very good route with varied climbing including hands, off-width, chimney, fingers, has it all. excellent rock on P1, P2 rock mostly good tho a bit sugary at top out. Someone added more bolts on P1 making this a very safe, though strenuous pitch. Jun 26, 2013

Soooo, maybe the rock is not perfect at the top of each pitch. Jun 18, 2012
