Description

This climb is the bolted face climb in-between "Sky Pilot" (around the corner to right) and the splitter third pitch of "Next" (on the face immediately to the left). Start on the bomber ledge and take the thin horizontal seam out right. Place some small gear, notice the wild exposure, and go up the steep face. This climb is well protected by Donner standards, but it will feel a little more run because of a couple hard clips. Bolts were drilled on on lead, sometimes off hooks. A cool climb and must do if you are in that area of the wall. This climb is not "jingus" : )

Might as well climb the third pitch of "Next" while you are up there. Descend from chains.

Protection

Small cams, bolts.

Hansi Standteiner put this climb up by bolting it on lead. Think about that as you climb it. It is a beautiful climb! Jan 15, 2015

Glad to see I made the photo. For all those out there the fall through the crux is clean. Heady, but clean. A fun exposure route. Sep 3, 2015
