Description

Pitch 1: Climb a white open book for 55 feet to a small tiered overhang. Step right and pull the center of the overhang to an optional belay ledge.

Pitch 2: Step 6 feet left, move up through a slight notch, step back right, and follow weaknesses just left of the prow to the summit. Descend with a two rope rappel or two one rope rappels.

Location

Begins from a nice platform below a white open book, at the left end of Land of the Giants and just right of Wine Couloir.

Protection

Light rack, medium nuts. Tree with slings on summit. Bolted mid-point rap anchor

I agree with Larry, Up and right is a much better option. Actually, I prefer to climb the entire second pitch out right towards the arete. This might bump the difficulty to 5.6ish, but it much cleaner and more exposed. Oct 1, 2014

Hey, Gordon - At some point on P2 (I think it's at a big horizontal weakness) there's a spot where you can move left into the gully - which is easier, but as you noticed, not very noteworthy; or you can continue up / slightly right - which is more exciting and exposed, but might up the grade a little.

1st pitch was really good. Second pitch was an easy grassy chimney/gully. I would lower from the rings on top of Pitch one if I were to do it again.. Sep 29, 2014

A new mid-cliff bolted rappel station has been installed.

Much better that the old tree & nut that used to be there. A 60m will get you to the base in 2 rappels again. Oct 28, 2013

Replaced the sling-salad at the very top rap tree yesterday. Installed some beefy 1/4" galv steel cable. It's got two redundant loops routed thru hose to protect the tree and some 1/2" quicklinks. Sep 17, 2012

A 70m rope will just barely get you back to the start of the climb from the top rap station. You might have to unrope and do a few 3rd class moves down to the start ledge. Aug 7, 2011
