Description

This is one of the best routes at Crosier. Climb fun horizontals followed by a reachy slab on the first pitch then a beautiful lieback crack on the second.

P1. 5.10c/d: climb fun horizontals past three bolts, cross the crack and step up to a bolt. Stretch left past the fifth bolt (very height dependent) then angle right to the crack and up to the anchors. For those less than 5'9" or 10", after clipping the fifth bolt step right and ascend directly to the crack (5.11a).

P2. 5.11a/b: step left, and delicately lieback up the tips crack past three bolts. Continue up the dihedral above, then climb easily to the anchors.

Descent: do two 30 meter rappels.

Location

See the topo and photos.

Protection

Six bolts on the first pitch, three on the second supplemented with a few cams from 0.5 to 1.5 with an optional 2.5, and a couple long slings for horns.
