Description [Suggest Change]
A sporty route up a sustain but featured face. Knoby face climbing past bolts to a two bolt anchor. The route starts on a narrow ledge, you'll step out left and make for the small right-facing corner 10 feet up, after this climb upward through balance-e climbing from knob to knob, following the bolts for 150' to the anchor. Continue up 5.6 slab for the next pitch and one low-fifth pitch upward to the stairs as the Finish. Rapping off would result in having to down-climbing the 4/5 class sections below the climb.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route starts a few hundred feet downhill from Bear Damage(5.10). There are two ways to approach the climb. You can start down the East Gully, following a vague trail, until you see the route to the right of a right facing corner and can scramble up 4/low 5th Class blockiness, or you can walk up the stairs for a bit until you see the trail over the railing on the left that leads towards the shorter sport routes. Follow this and down climb through some trees walk across a ledge until you see a rap anchor inside of a little ravine at the end of the ledge. this Rap will take you to the base of the climb without climbing the approach blocks.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bring plenty of alpine draws and draws. Bring TCUs for the small corner at the starts. A 60m rope if you plan on topping out and not rapping.
