Description

One of the best moderate multi-pitch routes at Index.

P1: 11a. Start in an often wet left-facing flake-dihedral system, then move onto the face.

P2: 10d. Face moves to a corner.

P3: 10d. Short pitch to a ledge at the base of the long final dihedral. Crux face moves to easier moves over a roof.

P4: 10d. Follow the thin dihedral.

Use two ropes to rappel.

Protection

Small wires to wide-hand sized cams.

Looks like there is a tree growing in the final dihedral. Anyone does this recently? I remember running into some black widow spiders on this final pitch back in 2006. Mar 22, 2014
As of spring '15 there do not appear to be any black widows; the tree, however, remains. This is a technical, wild, and improbable route that deserves to get climbed more. The line appears freshly bolted and one 70m rope gets you down. May 18, 2015

Based on what we saw today, it doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic. No chalk anywhere and needed to garden the final pitch (which is clean now). The tree mentioned above is about 5" in diameter at the base now so a pocket saw won't do the trick. Climbed what I assume to be the newer variation (like not brand new but not the original line) on P1 which traverses left on a sloping ramp halfway up with newish looking bolts. Based on this pitch, grading this route 10d overall and "one of the best moderates..." is a sandbag. The bolts that head straight up from the middle of P1 do not appear to get much (any?) traffic anymore. Pitches 2 and 4 are cool. One 70M does get you down, a 60M will not reach the ground on P1 but two ropes definitely not needed if you have a 70. Oct 5, 2015

Route is currently very dirty due to major development in the area. There is plans to retro fit old bolts on p1, remove the tree on p4 and give the route a cleaning. This won't likely happen until later in the summer until the other routes are complete. It is probably climbable, but expect any of the ledgey sections to have some dirt. Jun 15, 2017
