Description [Suggest Change]

Great face climbing, similar to Freudian Slip (on Big Slide) but without the long approach.

P1: Mantel a ledge, then go up a right-rising seam. At its top, go straight up to a fixed anchor. 5.9, 100'

P2: Go straight up great holds to a narrow ledge with another fixed anchor. 5.10a, 100'

P3: Step left from the anchor, the go straight up steep friction to where the angle eases. Runout up and left to an often-dirty crack; climb this (and the face to the right to avoid the dirt) to a sloped ledge with a fixed anchor. 5.8, 100'

Descent: Rappel the route with a single 60m rope. Watch the top rappel, as it just makes it to the anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the slab left of the large chimney and debris cone. Recent rockfall from right of this route has devastated the area below this route.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Sparse rack to 1.5". Most of the pitches are bolted; once you know the route, it can be climbed with just draws.
