Description Suggest change

Two really fun and radically different pitches. P1 is the Obelix pitch; surprisingly accessible 5.10 wide climbing through pods with stemming possible for part of it. Hand jams at the at the tops of the pods keep it from being too difficult. P2 is the Asterix pitch; step left at the belay, and work your way up a challenging dihedral on bullet rock. Tricky 5.11. Tiny tips climbing gives way to fingers and the crux is over quickly, though the climbing remains engaging all the way up. The rock is excellent. Superb!

Location Suggest change

About twenty feet down canyon from Haymaker; pretty much the last route on the upper wall before the rock turns to junk.

Protection Suggest change

P1, 60 ft. 1 fixed pin to protect the choss at the bottom. It's a six inch pin, and the rock isn't as bad as it looks.
(2 each) #1-#4
(1 each) #5

P2, 60 ft.
(2-3 each) #0 to #1 (Red C3s work very well. Green C3s are a bit small). Could use some small nuts.
