Description

Climb the quality but runout slabs up the formation immediately south of the Cuban. To find it, hike up and around south and east perhaps 100 feet from the Cuban, to the base of a nice slab. Slab your way east with the sun at your back with the climbing easing after ~60 feet. The slabbing isn’t particularly hard, but there’s no pro for at least the first 40 feet. I thought the climbing would be easier, and once in, drilling was a more difficult option than just running it out. Belay at a slung chickenhead and bolt at the “top” of the formation, about 40 feet down and south of the summit of the Cuban. Rap off south and west. Not worth doing on its own, but if you’re in the neighborhood with the rocket already in your pocket, slab it up.

Location

Up and right (south) from the base of the western most tongue of the Cuban- perhaps about 100 feet, slightly hidden. It's directly south of the pitches two and three of the Khruschev.

Protection

Standard light rack.
