Description

A short and sustained finger crack with a flaring crux. Easily top-roped after leading Warpath , but a good challenging lead as well. Gear placements might be tricky in spots.

Clip the bolt up and right of the bolted belay. Follow the flake/incipient crack through a few short hand sections and past a dead tree stump to the leaning finger crack. Follow the incipient crack through the roof and up the face/seam/crack above until it is possible to step left to the anchor for Warpath.

Location

Start: On the Tombstone P1 ledge; see description for P1.
Descent: Rappel from bolted fixed anchor; a 70m rope makes it to the ground. Need confirmation on a 60m, anyone?

Protection

To BD #1 C4 size, possibly double fingers; 1 protection bolt, bolted fixed anchor

Just to note, Lawyer/Haas have it rated as 10d PG. I'm not certain why the PG. The gear is a bit tricky in spots, but I didn't really feel like I couldn't protect the climb at any point. However, at the hardest parts I was just pushing through, so maybe the gear isn't good there. I felt the distance between pieces was reasonable for G though. But feel to comment/correct. Jul 10, 2011

I think it's PG because of the pro difficulties at the start after the bolt -- you'll fall below the belay. I'd be happy with "G", though. Jul 12, 2011

Jim, that makes sense. I think I glossed over the opening moves in my memory. I remember that being a bit "in your face" now that you mention it. I knew I was probably not remembering something. Thanks for the reminder and all your hard work over the years. Jul 12, 2011

A 60m rope gets you to the ground. Be careful, it's close. I thought the gear was pretty straightforward and that 10+ is a bit generous. Worthwhile to climb if you're up on the ledge. Jul 15, 2014
