Description

A great one pitch cragging or 3 pitch adventure route.

Pitch 1: (5.10a, 90') Pull the low crux at bolt 1 and follow great edges to a 2 bolt anchor. Gear is required in the horizontals between the bolts and at the top.

Pitch 2: Steep start to the climbers’ right of the belay using cryptic moves (5.10) past 3 bolts leads to a ledge with a large block on its left side. Continue up and slightly right utilizing some gear placements and heading for the bolts. Climb up the very cool, steep face using liebacks and crimps as the moves get harder. The climbing stays pretty sustained past 10 or so bolts before easing off and rambling up a short corner (5.7, #1 camalot) to a belay ledge with 2 bolt anchor (2 ropes needed for descent). 5.11a, 130’.

Pitch 3: Climb up and right to a shallow left facing dihedral. Unlock the sequence to get into the dihedral (5.10a). Follow bolts and a few gear placements up to a narrow ledge system. Pull up onto the ledge and move to the left, then up a steep face to a fingers to hands splitter. Continue up this crack to a roof with a bolt and faux chimney above. Finesse your way into this chimney of awkwardness (5.11b) and continue up passing a small roof on the left. Finish at a 2 bolt anchor on a nice ledge at the top of the wall (No chains, rappel Sun & Steel). 5.11b, 130’.

Rap with two ropes or rap Sun & Steel.
