Description

Pitch 1 starts on a crack riddled slab below the "X Wall" sign. Climb up through easy ground and then move slightly left through a slab feature to a corner crack system. Climb the crack to a perfect belay ledge and bolt anchor. This pitch is surprisingly as good or better than the second. 120 feet
Pitch 2 eats gear and follows the left leaning hand/fist crack that straightens and narrows to fingers near the top. 90 feet
Nice clean granite with fantastic cracks make for some splendid climbing from top to bottom. A beautiful climb.

Protection

Single rack to 3" maybe double up on 1 to 3 for pitch 2. Anchor is shared with Up Yours and Fifty Mission Cap. Use the Emerald City anchor on your second rappel to get back to your packs.

Classic route! Eats gear, spacious belay ledges, and excellent views.

If you don't feel like doing two rappels, the route can be rapped with a single 70m but there is 15 feet of 5.0 down-climbing to the base.

P.s. Look out for spiders! Sep 4, 2018
