Description [Suggest Change]
Located on a prominent prow I like to call "The Flying Dutchman", 'Cape of Good Hope' ascends the left side of this feature. Easy and enjoyable climbing leads to a high 1st bolt. Continue upwards, following the bolt line or just right of the bolts. The crux presents itself around the 4th and 5th bolts with a puzzling transition up to the 6th bolt. After clipping the 6th bolt, head right to a nice crack and a good rest. From here, it's easier traditional climbing up cracks and blocks. There are some fun exit moves to get to a 2-bolt anchor with chains and quick-links.

6 bolts for the bottom half of the climb leads you to easier traditional climbing for the second half. A light rack of cams up to #3 BD C4, a single set of nuts, and slings will get you to the top. A nice 2-bolt anchor with chains and quick-links are at the top to rappel down.
