Description

The difficulty begins right off the deck, but eases off considerably after the inital fixed gear. Commit to a difficult rising traverse past three old bolts. Then, easier gear-protected face climbing brings you to two more bolts at about 70 feet. Continue up, finishing at a notch below a small pine tree.

The rock on this climb is pretty good, and the upper face climbing is fun and interesting. The rising traverse feels pretty stout for the grade.
The fixed gear is old and cannot be backed up, but all other placements are solid and frequent.

Location

The first route left of the Gift of Grace arete.

Protection

5 bolts + single rack to #2. No anchors, bolted or otherwise. Be prepared to rig your own off of one of the many pines at the clifftop.

70m rope mandatory. Due to the traverse, a 60m will come up short on rappel.
