Description

There are two bolted anchors near the overlook railing which serve as a great spot from which to lower the climber to the base. It is not recommended to hike into the base of this climb due to abundant poison ivy and difficult hiking however the danger to you and your belayer from massive rock fall should not be underestimated. Personally I would never belay from the base below the gigantic bus sized block that's loose. NO JOKE.

From the base work your way up the off angle ramp. As you near the top of the slab follow holds towards the overhang. Pull through the overhang on good holds and work out left a bit and then fire the painted face to the top. Would be a great route if it wasn't for the paint. And it's thick paint too.

Not a recommended lead...

The whole roof section in the middle of this route seems like it could shed THOUSANDS of pounds of rocks quickly if the wrong piece of rock was pulled on, especially after a good freeze/thaw period. Its a fun TR but I personally would NEVER recommend someone belay from the bottom since there is absolutely nowhere to hide if a rock came loose. Oct 15, 2013

Agreed completely... Also of note there is a MASSIVE (bus sized) detaching block, climbers right of Passage to India. This thing has moved under body weight and is almost half the size of the cliff. STAY AWAY! Oct 15, 2013
