P1 5.10a -- Start at base of right rising ramp 15 feet left of Brightly Colored Males. Climb straight up to the triangular pod, then gain the first in a series of left leaning cracks gaining the most obvious of the cracks to the top.


15 feet left of the obvious corner (Brightly Colored Males). Route takes a path that generally stays in the middle of the series of left rising cracks on the steep wall. To its left is a much tougher and thinner 5.10c, to the right a very thin 5.10d (both appeared dirty/less traveled).


Might accept gear the whole way, but it's become a popular top rope route.

This is an excellent little (tricky) hidden gem if you are over climbing Tilman's Arete. Nov 11, 2011

fantastic route, really delicate but a pumper at the end. there's some mandatory crack skills required for this one. Aug 1, 2011
