DescriptionA mountaineering style route up a previously unclimbed Reef peak. The three main pitches all are on good sandstone. The route name comes from the training camp activities the night before the climb.
P1) Start below the black wall (small cairn). Climb the wall on good holds for about 40', then go just left of a blind crack past a bolt that protects a couple of 5.7 moves to a good ledge and tree belay. 150' 5.7. (rap anchors about 20' to the right)
P2) 4th class up slabs into the amphitheater for about 300', then when below the obvious big corner scramble up left for a 100' to a good ledge below the main wall. Here the next pitch starts. Easy slab to the dark rock corners. Up the corners, past a bolt, then more steeply up the wall above past two more bolts to double anchors. 200' 5.7.
3) Scramble about 100' up to the right to below the final headwall. Straight up the center of the wall via broken cracks and slab to a great summit. Double anchors. 120' 5.6. Register in small cairn on summit.
