Description [Suggest Change]
This description is for the first pitch only. This is a superb natural line of high quality sustained crack and edge climbing. There are just enough stances to keep it in the sub-5.12 range. Get on this one fresh.
Location [Suggest Change]
At a left end of a lower cliff band between the waterfall and Spider's and Snakes Buttress. Find a left leaning crack/seam on a steep brown face. There a small roof with wedged block at head height. 12 feet up the seam forms a short right facing ramp.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Lots of tiny to finger size cams (hybrids useful) and small stoppers. The belay on the ledge usually has fixed gear but, the slings are often chewed. Bring a couple of medium cams and be prepared to leave something.
