Description

A Vantage rarity - an easy trad route of decent quality! It's got thirty feet of thin crack, then two clips on left. No jamming required, just stemming and edge climbing.

As of 2017, this route was extended by adding a bolt off the final ledge and a 2 bolt anchor that lowers directly back to the base of the route. No more rope drag when lowering or grassy ledge scrambling required to access the anchor.

Location

Thin crack in corner immediately left of Orangekist. Once onto the ledge at the top, the anchor rings are up and left.

Protection

Takes small/medium nuts and cams to 2". Crack has some flaky parts but also enough solid sections to protect fine.

I'm not sure if it has a name or not, but the short finger crack that ends in the roof just to the left of this line is very fun and solid. At the roof, traverse back out right and into this crack. Clip the bolt on the way if you're scared.

PS: The bolts are not needed for this climb, there is plenty of adequate protection to be found in the crack. Mar 3, 2016

Just a heads up, the first bolt is loose. I attempted to tighten it with a nut remover, but use caution. Apr 22, 2015
