Description

5.9+/ 5.10a
This route is a great option if you want more climbing after doing the Thumb. 2 pitches of ridge-esc climbing takes you to a flat summit. The weathered granite will clean up after a few more ascents. Have your slab game on for this one.

Location

This route is on the descent for the Thumb. It it visible when looking east from the summit of the Thumb. The start is at the bottom of the ridge at a low angled slab. The bolt on the first pitch is visible from the ground. The belay at the top of the first pitch consists of a fixed pin and great natural protection. The top of the route ends at a bolted fixed anchor. Rap one rope (60m) rappell due west and hike down from there.

Protection

quickdraws, slings, something (cordellette/sling) suitable for wrapping a chicken head on the 1st pitch, #1 metolius, #2 metolius, #2 camalot, #3 camalot, #.75 camalot, #1 camalot. Medium stopper.
