DescriptionA recommended route that takes a mostly mellow path up to one of the taller peaks.
11 pitches, 6a
P1-3 5b, 5a, 5b. Route name marked at base. Possible to link 1-2 together with 60s by a bit of simulclimbing.
P4 6a One airy move up an overhang gives the grade, otherwise just fun climbing.
P5 5c+++ What the wha .? If you love slab climbing, you'll love this pitch. Otherwise bombs away!
P6 5c Shortish nice pitch up to a topout with two anchors; next pitch starts across a gully to the right, so best to just keep going here and belay from the bottom of p7.
P7-9 More good fun on ridge-textured rock, also another place between p 8-9 where you have to walk over some grass to get to the next belay. Just follow the red arrows (nice touch).
P10 Bit of a kooky pitch, but fun! After going straight up a bit, walk again across some grass and punch through some fun moves on a mini-tower arete to the comfy belay ledge. Or like I did, belay at the base of the mini-tower on one old yellow bolt (plus some gear) to make two short pitches with better communication.
P11 To the top! Enjoy the view.
6 rappels on 60m ropes, again following the red arrows to some dedicated rap stations.
