Description

5.9??? Originally this climb was given a 5.9-grade in the Dome Driver Manual. However, according the story I heard, the ground below the problem was washed away and badly eroded after it was first documented. Consequently, getting off the ground is much harder than the 5.9 grade implies.

After figuring out a way to start it, continue up the lower angle slab. Then pull the tricky to protect boulder problem found on top of the slab to the climber's left.

The descent is also less than ideal. It's a good idea to look at the descent before committing yourself to this one.

IMO this route really isn't worth the trouble. I'm only posting it here because it serves as a good landmark.

Location

This is the first large jumble of boulders you pass when coming up the Lost Wall/Center Wall Trail.

Protection

Larger size gear if you want to protect the slab and smaller gear to protect to boulder on top. There are no bolts, top anchors, or fixed pro of any kind.
