Description

I don't know the name or history of this route but perhaps someone (Bryan Gall?) can chime in with what they know.

Start on the steep, jug-hauling, hand jamming start of Sumac. Climb about 25 feet up Sumac and then traverse left at the obvious break where an undulating, rail system provides passage across the steep and otherwise mostly blank face. Continue onto a sloping ledge at the base of a wide chimney that has a bolt on the left face. Go up the right hand corner of the chimney by pulling into a lieback. The crack quickly turns into nice hand jams before it ends at the ledge with a two bolt anchor.

You can also continue up for one or more pitches for a No Name adventure.

Location

Start on the road just right of the large, silver door that is part of the Glenwood water system. Use the same start as Sumac.

Protection

Stoppers and cams from small (tips) to large (#5 Camalot). Two bolt anchor at top.

Cleaner maybe but a little scary as I am not tall enough to protect the balance traverse. Jun 27, 2013
