Description

P1 (5.6/7): from the right side of the toe of the buttress head up and left toward a bolt (easy climbing, but a bit off the ground). Pass a small lip on the left while following a thin/flaring crack seam, then head up the face past three more bolts and angle right toward the prominent bush and anchor.
P2 (5.7): go up past six bolts then move right into a crack system that leads up toward the 2nd anchor. Alternatively, it is possible to go straight up from the 6th bolt, watch the giant flake (that may or may not be loose).

A good warm-up.

Location

Start at the toe of the slab. Two 30m rappels from mussy hooks.

Protection

P1- 4 bolts and optional thin gear
P2- 6 bolts and gear to 2"

A really fun route! The first bolt is a bit far off the ground without pro for your aspiring 5.7 climber! ;^)
I lead this one in 1 long pitch w/longer runners and the rope drag wasn't bad at all. I only placed 2 pieces of gear, a #2 and a yellow TCU at the top.

The wife tied in and lowered me until she was tight and "weighted climbed" until I was on the ground (25 feet or so). She then did two raps off. Pretty straight-forward. Jul 17, 2015

Although it is possible to climb this route by only clipping the bolts, I wouldn't call it a sport climb. The cruxes are bolt protected, but most people will want some additional gear, especially for the top half of the second pitch. The pitches can be run together, but it's probably best to break them up to reduce rope drag. May 27, 2014

Did this in one pitch, a lot of drag, probably should have broken it into 2. Good climbing though, fun stuff. Feb 21, 2014
