Description

Fight through the first 40 feet then settle in for some less difficult climbing. The first pitch follows a corner system after the bolts then hits a ledge with a bolted Anchor next to a pillar. 2) Climb crack up pillar then follow bolts up face to a small overhang that takes pro. Bust up and left and follow corners to top. It takes a single 70M rope to just reach the mid point anchors on Naranja and the ground in two rappels.

Location

This climb ascends the face right of Jaws but starts 115 feet lower on the ledge that splits Neptune in the middle. It starts two bolt lines left of Naranja.

Protection

Bolts and double rack to Blue camalots

A good warmup for the wall and a good way to rap down Neptune. The second pitch is a bit more heady than the first. The crux is around the third bolt on pitch 1. Jun 3, 2012

Geir and I added a new slightly easier start to this route today. It is probably only two letter grades easier than the original start but I think I will use this as my warm-up from now on. It takes good gear up to a bolt then traverses right to the original route. Aug 11, 2012

Did the first pitch only. The first 30-40' involve slightly overhung and thought-provoking climbing. After that, though, it turns into a really easy (5.7ish) and slightly vegetated crack/corner for the remainder of the route. A good warm-up/cool-down for the area. Aug 18, 2015
