Description

This route is on the right side of The Most Excellent Crag. Clip the first low bolt and then make a thin traverse to the right over a small cave and then up passing several bolts and a few cam placements. Very good and sustained climbing with a cool steep finish on neat holds.

Descent: Rappel the route.

Location

The Most Excellent Crag. Far left side of the Iron Hayden Wall.

Approach
Continue along the base of the Iron Hayden Wall heading north until a small rocky ridge blocks the way. Descend a short distance to the west and continue traversing the base until a short, loose gully is reached. Go up this gully to the base of a clean orange wall with a small cave at its base. This is The Most Excellent Crag.

Protection

Gear: 7 bolts, a few cams up to a #3 camalot.
