Good moderate overhanging route.


15 feet right of "Black Crack"


Great gear. Static line may be needed for TR.

The guidebook description is rather confusing about where to start. The route I climbed was basically up the big chimney/dihedral like feature starting on the RIGHT side then passing the higher "triangular feature" roof on the right or left. To pull the left side you need to stem left across the chimney/dihedral first. I lead it both ways and they are about the same grade. I think if you start to the left of the chimney/dihedral on the face you are on Cynosure and it's significantly harder to get to the high "triangular feature" roof. Sep 23, 2018
