Description

Good fun and apparently a big route for accidents because it is tricky for the grade. The crux is the second pitch, near the top where there is a roof that shorties will have to heal hook on. Super fun lead and a great warm-up.

Location

Head to Organ pipes and its the first pipe that is not connected to the rest. You walk right up to it from the route.

Protection

Rap rings at the top, and just like the rest of arapalies don't leave home without your nuts. A #2 or #3 cam is nice to protect right before the crux move. Can be done as a single pitch with a 60m rope.

I didn't find it tricky or hard to protect. However, when you pull the first upper overhang, it is very easy to kick out your gear, and since it's nothing but slab below (which you probably didn't bother to protect), it could be a long drop.

A cam at the first overhang would solve this problem.

Easily done as a single pitch with a 60m rope.
