Description

Start in the obvious hand crack down and to the right of the first bolt. Fun face climbing (crux) brings you past three bolts to a ledge. Scramble on top of a large block to access the upper slab. Climb past two more bolts to reach the anchor.

Location

Approach as for Cyanosis, this route is on the buttress across the gully on the right. Rap or lower off.

Protection

5 Bolts, Gear to 2". Mussy hook anchor.

The route is 100' long. We lowered with a 60m rope, but watch the ends. Also, we thought the anchor was placed too high; the route should end 10' lower to avoid the dirt ledges where it ends now. Nov 6, 2016

Thanks for the comment, that's good to know about getting down with a 60.

I agree that the anchor is not in the best spot for lowering, but it was placed in order to facilitate a safe approach and descent for the cliffs above this route, which so far are undeveloped. The route was named for this future use.

It's probably best to rap from the anchor rather than lower in order to reduce wear on your rope from grinding on the rock. Nov 6, 2016
