DescriptionThe longest route on Stone Depot, and the left-most route as you are hiking downhill. Start on a low-angle slab with the obvious bolt line.
Pitch 1 (5.4): Slab and clip your way to chains, or link this with...
Pitch 2 (5.6): More slabbing and clipping to a nice stance below the short headwall. Pitches one and two are easily combined with a 70m rope.
Pitch 3 (5.7+): I've seen literature detailing this pitch as 5.8, but it felt quite soft for the grade. Make some steeper moves through eyebrows, then run up easier ground to chains.
Pitch 4 (5.5): Climb up featured rock through the next bulge, belay at rings.
Pitch 5 (5.4): Water groovin' to a tree. Pitches four and five can be barely combined with a 70m rope.
