Description

This magnificent line features a committing, dynamic boulder problem start, a thought-provoking twister section in the upper dihedral, and massive jugs over the steep final bulge to cap off the entire experience. The rock in the dihedral is brilliant, the moves are fun throughout and quite exposed at the top, and the continuity of the climbing makes the line feel much longer than it is.

Begin from the sloping ledge below the obvious, left-facing corner system just left of center. A dynamic boulder problem of gastons, sidepulls, underclings, and micro-footholds guards the vertical dihedral section. A few moderate moves lead to a strenuous stance below the immaculate upper corner. Exit the corner with a mind-bending sequence to reach Lonely Island Ledge just below the teetering cap rock. Hero jugs lead up the left arête and over the steep final bulge to the summit.

Location

This line climbs the obvious, left-facing dihedral system just left of the center of the east face. It is the second bolted line from the left.

Protection

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Stick clip the 1st bolt.

I exit the diherdal at the base of it to go out to the sloping rail. Must be different beta than the first ascent. Going straight up looks really hard! Oct 20, 2016
