Description

Climb the left edge of the massive flake that forms the chimney at the base of the Headwall. Pull onto the face and utilize the left edge of the pillar to heel hook and side pull to clip the 1st bolt. Continue up the face, frequently using the left side of the pillar and face holds to make progress up the pillar. A crux bulge at 3/4 height leads to the anchor on the Headwall and a stance atop the pillar. The 2nd pitch continues up and over a bulge to the anchors.

Location

Left side of Leaning Pillar, the huge blade of rock leaning against the wall 50 ft. above the streambed.

Protection

P1 - 5 bolts
