Description

Dirty corner system down low leads to a large ledge. After this the good part of the route starts which is a hand crack supplemented by face features, a crack traverse, then a larger hand crack above. The upper hand crack section has a massive chock stone that is not coming out anytime soon, which is unfortunate because the climb would be better without it. I had to tear out a couple of bushes on this climb. Mostly 5.6 and 5.7 moves with a 5.8 move or two after the traverse.

Location

Head up hillside similar to Bizarre Garb approach, but once you can see bizarre garb face above, stop hiking up and traverse climber's right toward group of rocks to the east. Cross a small boulder field until you see some dirty looking rock. Pass this dirty rock, pass a massive detached fin (which has a great arĂȘte climb on it that we didn't have time to climb), and then turn around to see the route which is east facing. Descent is a walk off.

Protection

Single rack with a #4 and doubles of #3 and #2 for trad anchor above.
