Description [Suggest Change]

This fun route climbs a groove/chimney to a small overhang then cuts left and finishes up a somewhat loose plated face to the top of the wall.

Based on pics and beta for adjacent routes, I'm fairly sure I did the route described. (See my contributed pic.) Maybe Chris Miller can confirm or disconfirm? Nov 28, 2016

To protect the starting sequence up the left side of the chimney, it's natural to take the right-facing corner fist and wider crack just left of my contributed pic's view. Traversing back right after that presents by far the psychological crux sequence. Plenty of loose or flexing flakes on this one. (I knew this from topping out the formation after completing Pony Express nearby.) Be good with finding the best pro that is sometimes tricky and potentially in marginal rock. Almost like an FA or an alpine climb.
Not for the 5.6 leader. Strangely satisfying. Dec 1, 2016

Pro: lots of passive, including tricams. Recommended to 3+". Plated section near top of route is not run-out and is reasonably protected with passive gear. Dec 1, 2016
