DescriptionA thrilling position and good moves on the upper pitch make this one a highlight of the area.
P1: 5.7, 130 feet. Start as for The Burning Bush, and climb past the anchors (optional belay here) to continue over the broken, ledgy terrain (5.2-5.3) of the Promised Land Ledge up into a spacious alcove with a mossy floor (11 bolts + 2-bolt anchor).
P2: 5.10a/b, 85 feet. Climb out of the alcove toward the roofs above (5.8), aiming for a bright yellow lichen streak. Dodge the first roof on its left side, and use stems and liebacks to work over the larger roof above (5.10a, crux). On the slab above, follow the bolts straight up to a 2-bolt anchor. Your view from here is commanding (10 bolts + 2-bolt anchor).
Two 60-meter ropes tied together will usually juuuust reach the ground from the top anchor (watch your ends), or you can rappel back into the alcove and do one or two more rappels from there to the ground.
There is a rusty, bent piton just above the upper anchor -- evidence of exploration during an earlier era.
