Description

This route shares the first two bolts of Avoider climbing up the white rock on great huecos. First bolt is 20' high, look for an old bee nest. A 2" cam between the first and second bolts can make this less runnout but is not necessary. From the second bolt climb through the roof following bolts up amazing pockets and tofas to the anchor just past the lip left of the roof. Bring an extendible for the anchor.

Location

These climbs are located in the high roof area of the upper left cliff. Access is gained by scrambling up the gully between the two main lower walls then cut left under the large overhanging sections of wall.

Protection

7 Bolts, 2" Cam, 2 Bolt Anchor
