Description

Excellent granite sport!

A blunt mini arete presents the first challenge. You slap your way up this, getting helpful high feet on the horizontal rail to make a big reach to its jug capped top. From here, big moves between good holds lead the way up. With perhaps three cruxes in the eleven, high ten range, it will keep your attention throughout. The dihedral chimney guarding the route's end succumbs to some well-placed hand jams, although the climbing there feels a bit suspect until you commit to it.

A bit short, but the climbing is sustained throughout.

Location

Right of The Pearl, and just right of a broken chimney feature.

Protection

5 bolts, three bolt anchor, chains
