At the beginning of the Uberfall, start on a blazed trail above the carriage road, under the same ceiling as 69

I haven't done the second pitch, but the first pitch is a cool climb. It makes a great top rope at the end of the day, and kind of challenging for its grade. It's easy to set up a top rope on Pitch 1 by walking/scrambling up in between Short Job and Nice 5.9 Climb .

P1: Follow the crack to a large ledge. Climb the next right-facing corner to ceiling and exit left (crux) to another ledge. Through the jumbled blocks, an overhang, and a short face to a large belay ledge with a small tree at the edge. 5.3, 50'.

From the top of P1, you can walk off to climbers' left to a 5.1 downclimb, or much farther climbers' left to an easy trail that requires no downclimbing.

P2 (from guidebook): Climb left-leaning ramp followed by a small crack. Move up and left (crux) to top and walk off left. 5.4, 80'.


Standard Gunks rack. G-PG. Static/webbing to set up TR for first pitch.

Climbed P1 and used rap tree to descend. P1 crux can be "protected" - if by protected you're okay with it being around a bunch of loose stuff looking like any fall will pull it down. DW says 5.3 first pitch, seems more like a 5.4. Oct 17, 2013

The crux of P1 is not well protected. It is not too hard (5.4) but if you miss it, you will likely hit the ledge. After clearing the "crux", you can spice up the climb by going straight up through the roof, it will go at 5.5. The second pitch is excellent 5.5 and not to be missed. It requires solid footwork and is not hard but also not trivial.

Climbed it again this weekend (04/30/17). I had #4 C4 and it actually provided decent protection for the P1 crux corner to polished face move. May 14, 2016

The P1 crux may be 5.4 (if you lead 5.8). The rock is smooth so not recommended for a 5.4 leader. We saw no tree rapp station but you should definitely do P2 (which may be a notch harder but overall felt safer) and do the easy walk-off left. Nov 19, 2016

It's short. Aptly named. Maybe two moves that pose a challenge. Maybe a 5.3 first pitch. 5.4 above with a beautiful crack to the top.

My guess is most people giving this low ratings only did the first pitch.

The first pitch is short, with a bouldery crux that seems like it might be a bit height dependent. At the top of the first pitch it seems like most people go left up a dirty path. Instead, I recommend going up the juggy face--it's fun and it will keep the rope in a more straight line if you're planning to link pitches, and it doesn't increase the grade. 5.4.

The second pitch is wonderful, really, and seemingly seldom climbed. The money pitch. It follows a long diagonal crack which beginning leaders may find a bit pumpy, in to a overhanging crux finish and a belay with a view. 5.5. May 20, 2018

This route seems underrated regarding it's quality. I really loved the second pitch. I think P1 is fine, but P2 is super fun! It was easy to sew it up on the left leaning crack at the start of it. Jul 9, 2018
