Begin in a nice dihedral with decent pro to get you to the first ledge. Step right and head straight up a broken crack system to the anchors on top of the climb just left of Esmerelda.

I took the "name" of this in the Foley guide to mean it was 5.8, but would call it significantly easier than that. I thought 5.6, but Hanna following me suggested 5.7, so there you have it.


The trad line two climbs left of Esmerelda that is climb #22 in the Foley Guide.


A single rack of cams to #4 will do you fine. I placed a .75, .5, 2 and 4. But, there are plenty of options and I only took the #4 because I had it and there was an obvious placement for it. Solid gear and plenty of it on the whole route.

There is a three bolt anchor on the flat top of the rock after topping out that you can set up with a long cordalette. The three bolts are obvious on the approach trail to the crag. Apr 25, 2014
