Head up ramp to start of crack. Fingers and hands to off- width roof. The crux is pulling the roof. The right wall is still a little grungy at the base.


The route is north facing. Hike up to the base of the dome and traverse uphill around the backside. You can tunnel through the boulders to get to the base. There are 2 bolts with slings on the south face that can be rapped to the ground with at 70m rope.


.5 - 4 camalots. An anchor can be built at the top or the pinnacle can be slung with ~10 feet of cord.

I was introduced to trad climbing the weekend before he sent this. After cruising and placing gear on a 5.6, he threw me on this and it was super fun and taught me to trust gear as I took a whipper or two at the crux of this route. Great route! Apr 12, 2015
