Description

This is the left-to-right traversing dike system that crosses Pope's Crack and begins by chimneying between the enormous boulder and the main face to reach the aforementioned dike system. Surf the dike out right passing one bolt and some easy but sizable runouts, stopping to place gear in the crack of Pope's Crack, until reaching a belay spot where the dike disappears briefly. Bring up the second and then make your way down to the rap anchors for the immediate vicinity.

A novel outing with the hardest moves well protected but still not the best choice for the budding leader despite the easy rating.

Location

Approach as for Pope's Crack but continue on until reaching an enormous boulder which appears to block passage. The route begins from the depths of the chimney.

Protection

1 bolt, gear to 2"
  • Bolt replaced by ASCA in 2016.
