DescriptionBegin just right of an obvious line of bolts (threadbare) at a short left facing corner with a ledge and small tree at its end. Scramble up to the base of the left facing corner and climb to the ledge/tree and clip a bolt. Work your way up to another bolt that protects a thin 5.9 section. Continue up on easier terrain past a fixed pin to a final bolt and another 5.9 section to gain a nice ledge with an anchor (100ft). Pitch two goes up slightly left of the anchor to a bolt, then straight up into a nice crack system to the top (5.8, 65ft). Can be done in a single pitch but prepare for rope drag.
LocationStarts in the corner just right of the line of bolts on a dark steep face.
Rappel the route. Two raps with a single 60 m rope works.
