Description

At the time of this posting this route is largely unprotectable except by top rope. You may be able to find pro behind the flakes down low. However, it will quickly become useless as you move higher. Start on the low angle slab and follow it to a short series of flakes. Climb the flakes and continue up a system of nice edges until it blanks out near the top. Finish by smearing your way up the low angle nearly featureless slab. Crux is at the top.

Location

Located to the right of Prok Wall and left of Late Night.

Protection

Very little meaningful pro can be found on the route and there are no bolts. It is pretty much a top rope or solo route. It is often top roped by the guide services that frequent the area. Requires small to medium pro to build a TR anchor. There are no bolted top anchors. Note that the near by anchors in the alcove will not serve as a TR anchor for this route due to the high risk of a pendulum into the slab below in the event of a fall. Those anchors serve as the designated rap anchors for parties climbing the Backside on a single 60. They are not intended to be used for all day rappelling or climbing. They do not protect any climb.

The flake section can be protected with small cams and nuts, but the upper section of small ledges and slabs is run out. Feb 17, 2014
