Face climb up to the 1st bolt and start some interesting moves from the 2nd to the 3rdbolt(crux) moving left and up. After you gain the 1st ledge, the climbing moves over to the arete moving up and left using a horn for protection until your able to pull yourself on top of the arete. From here use the old chain anchors or move up another 15ft to Cleaning Lady anchors(kinda runout but on easy ground).


Next bolted line right of Cleaning Lady. Starts near the arete. Doesn't look like anyone really climbs this and the other two sport routes to the right of it very often.


5 Bolts, and 1 single length sling for a horn at the top. Old Chains for the anchor or go up and left and us Cleaning Lady anchors.

We set up Top-Rope by extending static rope or long runners down over the top edge from the two-chain top anchor. We reached that two-chain anchor by scrambing up around the Right (west) side of cliff. The top area is fairly slopy, so be careful of slipping off (and careful not to dislodge loose rocks + dirt).

Lots of interesting thoughtful moves, fairly sustained. I guess perhaps no single move is harder than 5.8 after a couple of tries to work out the difficulties of each section. My advice: Don't be in a hurry to Lead it first thing in your day as a "warmup". Aug 3, 2015
