Seasonal Closure Details


Turn on the adrenaline! This route ascends slightly crumbly pegmatite on its lower half. Easy climbing leads to a high 1st bolt. Ascend a vertical face via sidepulls, underclings, crimps, & slopers. The crux is at 3rd bolt, followed by an exciting run-out to reach the 4th bolt in a bulge. Traverse left around the bulge. Pull over a second, small bulge, at 5th bolt, onto a sloping shelf. Finish up a moderate slab. This is another great warm-up for Frisky Cliff.


It is right of Yellow Tail & left of Big Tuna.


6 bolts /2 Fixe rings.

Better warm up for Frisky than the 10c, and just as fun. I'd give it 3 stars if it weren't for all the friable holds. Sep 26, 2015
