Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details
DescriptionThe premiere line on the rarely visited "Willowwacks Wall". Would be 3-stars if it had a nice trail and better anchors.
Whether the hassle of the approach is worth the pay off is up to you, but this chimney/off-width/hand/finger crack formed by an overhung dihedral is among the cleanest routes on the quartzite formations.
P1 (optional) 5.6 : Very short...hand crack with good face holds. Top out and move to the left around the boulder to set up a gear belay.
Unrope and walk about 20 feet or so to the Hoffwidth.
P2 5.10- : Climb the thin face using the chimney/offwidth occasionally...moving out of the dihedral, pass a tiny ancient hangerless bolt and follow the hand/finger crack to the left. Use caution with the thin flake about 1/2 way up the route, sketch!
Either finish up here and belay/rap off the small tree branch and some bail gear, or continue up the face to the right and to the top to truly earn the grade! (scary down climb)
Note: Pitch one can be skipped with a slippery walk up the south side along the base. You can also walk off here after the first pitch or after rapping the second.
