Description

P1:varied crack- initially fingers and hands, pass an awkward face move (5.9) to OW, clip a bolt to the left then hand traverse on jugs to corner system, above this clip rap anchor and continue up easier another 70ft to next anchor.PG13.
P2: move belay to the left 30ft. MONEY PITCH- this is what it's all about. Climb fingers in a steep right facing dihedral, pass a couple small roofs and a pod to anchors 110ft (12-)
P3: continue up dihedral on 5.8 hands (80ft)
P4:turn arete onto North face pass a couple of bolts and gear. The exposure is HUGE! We climbed this pitch as a mix of C1 and 5.11; it'll probably go at 5.12. Alternatively, continue up dihedral/ow/chimney 5.10ish "Damfido". Rap the route.

This line is worth the bush wack. The first pitch is by far the worst. P2 is so good we both led it, but felt like its 5.11+. P4 position and climbing is awesome, and goes free at 5.12-. After a bit of lichen scrubbing, Matt Swartz sent in style, I sent less stylishly. We swapped out the tat for chain on the raps so its good to go. Finger crack fanatics, get on it! Oct 21, 2017
