Description

This is a fun face climb followed by a knobby arete with the crux at the top. It can be done as one or two pitches. Climbing to the first set of anchors makes for a great 5.8- pitch.

P1. 5.8-. Scramble to a high first bolt, then follow 6 bolts up nice face climbing past a two bolt rappel anchor. Continue to a large ledge with a tree.

P2. 5.9+/10-. Climb past four bolts up the left corner of the tower above. Finish up the obvious crack/flake (gear) to chains at the top.

Descent: do a thirty meter rappel followed by a twenty meter rappel.

Location

This route is located at the west end of the Main Crag where the approach trail first hits the wall. It is the first route left of the chimney on the right side of the wall.

See the photo.

Protection

Twelve bolts and 00 and 0 TCUs.

My partner took a fall at the 2nd bolt on the 2nd pitch when a foothold knob broke off. I don't think the route got any harder, but you should be alert for fragile holds. Feb 15, 2015
