Description

This climb starts 125' up the cliff on a large ledge.
You get there by first climbing Easier Done than Said or Black Crack.
Starting from anchors on ledge climb steep face 8' right of anchor and directly behind pine tree.
Follow bolts tending right, up to bolted anchors shared with Banshee

Location

Start on alpine ledge 125' up wall behind a pine tree.

Protection

The belay(bolts) for this climb and Banshee is rather far left of the climbs. This is to protect the belayer if the climber knocks off something. The route is solid along the bolt line, but there hasn't been much traffic.

8-10 bolts plus 2 bolt anchor.

The crux of this climb comes between the 2nd and 3rd bolts; there is a bouldery section there, then the climb eases off significantly, providing juggy ledges and deep finger cracks you can lock off on. Also, I don't know how often this gets climbed so I'm just putting it out there, the last 15' or so of the climb is on stacked blocks that perhaps used to be a solid face but is slowly succumbing to cracking, freeze/thaw cycles, and gravity. It will all come down someday - hopefully not soon! Jun 15, 2017
