DescriptionThis fun, little outing offers some great climbing on mostly good stone in a beautiful setting.
Pitch 1. Wander past the line of bolts on somewhat continuous terrain with a few good stances for rests. Angle slightly right to the last bolt, and surmount the final bulge to reach the bolted belay anchor in a shallow, right-facing corner (5.11-, 105 feet).
- Use caution while climbing this pitch. There is a GIANT, detached flake system around bolts 5 and 6, to the left. It is easy to avoid contact with the flake.
Pitch 2. Stem up the corner for a few feet, and move right to clip the first bolt. Climb up through orange-colored rock past four closely spaced bolts (crux) and onto a narrow ledge. Wander up and left past 2 more bolts over exciting terrain to reach the final bolt, then climb up and right on an easy ramp to reach the bolted belay anchor on a nice, airy ledge. This belay is on the far left side of what is known as the '5.10 ledge' (5.11b, 90 feet).
Rappel the route or finish with any of the other routes that continue from the '5.10 ledge'.
LocationThis is the farthest left bolted line on the Upper Great Face. Start directly in front of a 4'x 4' flake sticking out of the ground next to the wall, between two trees.
