Description

Start by the tree with a hand crack coming off the ledge, lieback and face climb to the roof, pull the roof move (careful of the blocks on the right they are loose) and follow bolts to ledge and cold shut. 2nd pitch (you can link the 2) follow bolts up through seams and grooves to rap bolt anchor.

Location

After rappelling off the top down cliff about 20 feet.

Protection

quickdraws and 1 or 2 hand pieces (#1 & #2 camalot) and a few finger pieces or wires, you can back up the cold shut anchor with a blue and yellow metolius

This is a good option as an exit pitch for good clean fun, it was harder and much longer with very exciting moves at the top. If doing in one pitch be careful of rope drag. I did not notice any bad rock. May 26, 2016

I am not sure of the status of the blocks right of the crux bolt, I climbed left of the bolt as to not disturb the block, and the moves were pretty thin. May 24, 2012
