Description

This is a great route to practice leading or following trad climbs. It climbs a ramp up across the face of the dome.

Location

Once you reach the rock, follow the base of it up and left until you see the obvious corner/ramp trending up and right.

An alternative approach is to take Little Baldy trail, leave the trail just before the dome and descend along the base of the west face until you see it.

Protection

Set of cams and nuts, it'll take all the gear you can throw at it.

Extremely easy for the grade. It was much easier then The Trough (5.4) at Tahquitz. You can probably do in one long pitch with a 70 and solo or simul off the slab walk-off. Looks like it eats smaller gear and super easy to protect. Aug 17, 2016
Great multi-pitch for a beginner looking to build confidence. Aug 3, 2014
