Pitch One: Scramble up onto the grassy ledge and into the back of the gully. Climb easy 5th to another large ledge and a 2 bolt anchor.

Pitch Two: Move the belay 10 feet to the left to the base of a sandy crack system (not the good looking crack on your left). Follow this up and right of the roof to a two-bolt belay. Clean some of the dirt out of the cracks for the next party. Crack systems just to the left or right provide more challenging climbing. 5.5

Pitch Three: Continue up the crack system and move left across the slab (1 bolt) to a chimney. Head up before making the step around move (crux) to a large ledge and a 2 bolt anchor. 5.6

Pitch Four: Follow low-angle terrain up and left to a final two bolt anchor.

Alt. Pitch Four: Head straight up past one bolt on some cool patina edges. Pull the small roof to a two bolt anchor. 5.8

Climb this route in four short pitches or combine pitches 2 and 3 with minimal rope drag.

Walk off or rap from the top of the 5.8 4th pitch variation to the top of the 2nd pitch, and then to the ground. Watch the ends of your rope on the second rappel.


Start in the wide gully about 100 feet to the right of Gunky.


Standard rack. Bolted Anchors.

The first two pitches were lousy, the last two pitches (including the direct finish) were fun. Jan 2, 2018
