Description

Steeper than it looks and fairly sustained despite it's length, this route favors finger strength and technique above all.

Good edges and a balancy layaway past the first bolt gain a distant horizontal crack and the 2nd bolt. Catch a rest then punch it up the smooth face above using good finger edges with tricky footwork. Once the third bolt is reached the difficulty eases and the character of the route changes as you lieback along a sharp arete onto a ledge and finish with some thin slab to anchors.

A fun outing for the area well worth a spin if climbing at the grade.

Peter Principle, what's that?

The Peter Principle states that "in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence".

The climbing up the smooth wall is fingery and engaging. Feb 12, 2012
