Description

Similar to Bright Eyes in nature, but with a harder crux.

Pitch 1, 90' Bolts, small to medium cams: Off the same starting ledge as Bright Eyes, the large arching roof above begins with a 20' tall broken column on the left. Lieback the right side of this column to gain the start of the arch. But, exit the arch as soon as you enter it, by climbing up left past the parallel, horizontal finger cracks. Rock over left after clipping the bolt (crux), and proceed past a pin above to the bolted anchor at 90'.

Pitch 2, 175 feet Bolts, small to medium cams: Follow the bolts to a small roof/overlap, after which you'll trend right into the corner formed by the large roof above Bright Eyes. At the top of this corner look for a bolt up and out right that should encourage you to step out right and finish above. The bolted anchor is set back on the large grassy ledge, you can't see it from the last bolt. This is the same finish as Bright Eyes, which you'll rappel 3 times to get down.

Protection

Single cams from fingers to 2". Bolted belays/raps.
