DescriptionIf this route has been climbed, it hasn't been climbed in many decades. Had no fixed gear, and copious loose blocks waiting to squish your partner. It starts directly below the large roofs on the right hand side of Snowbird, and follows a choss filled corner system.
Pitch 1: This pitch has potential, it is dirty but with some love and such it could be a fun little adventure with good access to the roofs. 5.10R/X 1 star. Belay off a number 2 and number three BD just above an alcove. 110ft.
Pitch 2: This pitch has no potential unless you're training for alpine choss wrangling scarefests. From the belay, climb trending right into loose dirty corner, this has some weird rock, loose blocks, and looks to be typically very wet. 5.9 R. Belay from a nice stance to the right just before the angles slacks off. 100ft.
Pitch 3: Is this an actual pitch? Loose blocks, moss wrangling and such. 5.5. Belay off of boulders at the top. 100ft. Walk off climbers right.
