Description

A fun climb that starts crumbly but becomes more classic with height. Good variety of climbing with some nice cracks, corners, and face climbing. 

Pitch 1: Scramble up the gully to reach the left facing corner. Climb the corner with help from a series of cracks out left with occasional face holds. Move left under a roof and over easier ground below a varnished roof with a wide crack. 150'

Pitch 2: Pull the wide roof and follow up a nice right facing corner to a large ledge. 50'

Pitch 3: Move the belay down and right slightly and climb a long left facing corner with a series of cracks and some face holds on fairly vertical stone. Eventually it will ledge out and build a belay where you see fit 120'

Descent: Hike a bit further up Kraft Mountain and then cut right (East) and traverse the hillside until you reach the "2nd gully" and take this down following cairns. At a certain point you leave the gulley and head right (West) traversing the hillside to the base of the route.

Location

Take the Kraft Mountain Loop Trail thought the boulders turning off up the hillside shortly after Plumbers crack. Keeping an eye out a large white left facing corner that looks like an upside down "L" on Kraft Mountain which is the first pitch. 

For additional visual reference, the base of the route is also just left of a large boulder-like block and the base of the cliff.

Protection

Single to 4.5" inches. Double .5-#2, Stoppers and extendable slings.
