Description

Follow the slightly left-trending crack system, which starts as hands and then becomes layback fingers. Right below the lip at some jugs, traverse right 10 feet, and follow the seam/crack over the bulge. There are no anchors, but a top rope can easily be set up on gear.

Location

Standing at the base of the main buttress under the large roofs, walk climber''s left around the main arete. Look up at the slightly left-trending crack system.

Protection

Bring a full set of stoppers, singles of Camalots #0.5-2, and slings for the traverse.

This climb is called Warpity. I led it back in 2003, and I'm a 100% sure I wasn't the first. Aug 30, 2016

Nice job discovering this isolated crag for yourself. There is definitely some good climbing to be had that is a little out of character for the area. I believe this crag has seen climbing for some time and all the obvious cracks have seen prior ascents. I spent some time climbing here several years back, including climbing this route with Spenser L. and Johny B. We did not feel comfortable claiming a first ascent then, given the history of climbing in the area and the obviousness/ease of access of this outcrop. We decided not to further develop or clean the routes due to the amount of wildlife that would need to be displaced. Hope you continue having fun exploring the area and discovering some of the more esoteric crags. Mar 8, 2016
