Description

Climb a shallow seam past two pitons to the top of a small pedestal/shoulder. From here step right out onto the face. Continue another 50 or so feet up the face. Eventually the climbing will become low angle and easy for the last 30 feet the the anchor.

It is possible to lower off and top rope with a 60meter rope. This requires lowering or rappelling through the chimney/gulley uphill to the right. Tie knots in the end of the rope and/ or use extreme caution.

The line and movement on the route are nice but the downside is that it is on poor quality rock from the start to finish. There is also an abundance of moss and lichen.

Location

Located on the leftmost side of the East face of Teapot Dome on the Tunnel Trail. If approaching from the Southern portion of the Trail Teapot Dome is the large formation seen about a 100 yards after you exit the tunnel. It is near the Wedge.

Protection

3 pitons, four bolts, and a #4 cam is needed for a large hole halfway up the route.

2 bolt anchor with chains.
