Description

Climb Steep holds up a buttress to a ledge, a bit dirty but has a clean area up the middle. Climb a clean gray face to the next ledge, step over the center of a small overlap, and climb to the top.

Location

The route is about 5 ft to the right of a large spruce tree at the base of the shield.

Protection

Trad Rack, small size cams and nuts are helpful. There are slings around a tree at the top with rings.

This route is fun, the gear is all small I didnt use anything over a .5. The tree at the top with slings and quick links has seen better days but it is backed up to another smaller but living tree. Sep 12, 2011
