Description

A true bolt ladder of 10 bolts. Tough finger crack requiring lie-backing and stemming. The crux is the last move in the finger crack that sets up the exit from the dihedral. Requires excellent footwork including some smearing on smooth rock. Once above the crack some great friction moves get you to the double bolted anchors. Seems like an awful lot of bolts but I was glad to use them!

Location

Start is up high on the right side (look for the number 13 painted on the rock). Also used as a second pitch for Eight and Nine. Walk off using cable or rap down.

Protection

10 bolts, double bolted anchor.

Tough for a 5.8. Probably would be easier if I didn't fight my way up the crack and let the feet do the work. Jan 20, 2013

Great crack climb. The friction climb is tougher than it looks; I was happy to use every bolt. Apr 22, 2014
