Description

This is a bolted (6) sport route that could also be trad led. Fun route that takes you to the lower of the two spires. Pass the shuts and climb around to the left of the lower spire to gain its apex.

Scramble up from the belay area to the right to gain the crack. Clip the bolt then get out on the face and use whatever you want.

Location

On the East Face of The Pincer. If approaching from Roadside Block, walk up the gulley until you see a right trending ledge that you scramble up to gain the belay stance. From a tree, belay fellow climbers up through the scramble area for added safety.

There's an alternate scramble option on the West face.

Protection

Metolius anchors at the top. 6 bolts. If trad led, probably would want a #4 and a #3.
This route is rated 5.7 in the Boise Climbs book, but it's pretty mellow. Oct 7, 2012
