Description

Climb the smooth black hand crack to a ledge. The crux is found as the crack jogs right then up. Continue straight up on chossy, lichen-laden rock to a flaring off-hands chimney to a large ledge below a final roof. Belay the second from here then exit right into a brushy gulley. It's possible to continue up the final roof (~15ft) then walk off but the rope drag with be considerable.

Location

Located on a east facing wall up right of Sun Wall Right

10' of good climbing followed by kitty litter choss for 30'. Don't let the pretty starting crack fool you. Jan 23, 2014
