DescriptionFour pitches of fun, spicy rock climbing that gives the climber fun exposure.
Pitch 1: 5.6. From the one bolt belay climb up and left towards a roof, climb under the roof to a big belay ledge with a two bolt anchor. 75ft, gear to .75 in.
Pitch 2: 5.8. From the belay ledge carefully climb over the bulge, one 5.8 move. once above the bulge climb through spicy 5.7 and 5.8 moves on the slab, watch out for the death block on the left, although rock is better on the left is generally better. Sparse gear leads to a two bolt anchor on a green prow right. 110ft, gear to 4 inches.
Pitch 3: 5.5. This is pitch is lame. one 5.5 move take you to a some class 4 to a bolted belay on the left. 100ft.
Pitch 4: 5.8. The money pitch! From the anchor, climb slightly left to a short crack, place some gear here. Climb the face through some good stopper placements to a large slung boulder with a rap ring. 100ft. Gear to 1 inch.
The adventurous can take the route to the top through the goat fields making it either a walk (head right) or climb direct from the anchor, there are many short faces and fun boulder problems to be had. To descend, rappel the line, although in high winds finding a walk off might be a wise idea.
