Description

Climb up the first pitch 30 feet right of the cow center on thin cracks. The second pitch is really cool in the obvious left-facing dihedral. At times pro can be sparse so be confident on 5.7

Pitch 1 (5.5): There is a bush growing in the crack about 20 feet up, but the wall is low angle so it becomes a friction slab climb to get around the bush. The rest of the crack is dirty, but this is generally easy climbing until you reach the ledge.

Pitch 2 (5.8): The crack in the left facing dihedral has little if any places for fingers. What little space in the crack will have to be reserved for small gear from 0.3-0.75. Thus, the climb becomes a friction slab chimney smear. Great climb.

Anchor: 2 bolts with chains. Rap requires two ropes. Two 70m ropes will get you to the bottom. Anything else will require a second rap from the lower anchor. Oct 13, 2014
