This was an old abandoned project that had a bolt up high in the corner with a bail sling on it for quite a few years. The line was recently finished by climbing a difficult crack/rail just below where the corner gets fairly blank. The bolt stud has been left in place for now.

Climb moderate and steep terrain up and into the open book. Get a good look at the rail and when ready, drop the clutch and crank out the rail to great jugs at the end. Continue up to the anchor on more great jugs. Note: protect the second by placing a #4 camelot on the arete just below the anchors.


First route you come to at Lower Hawksbill (just left of Hairy Canary).


Standard rack up to a #2 camelot, then a #4 for the finish. The crux protects on finger to hand sized cams.
