DescriptionEstablished ground-up, this seam was very clean at the hardest sections down low but had a fine layer of dust/lichen/moss covers the upper part of the route. However, it has since been scrubbed and now offers a great traditional challenge.
Climb a loose/dirty slab to the base of the large roof. Place some perfect finger sized pieces then pull onto the roof and traverse left along a nice rail. Get a nest of good gear, work into a solid undercling flake, and crank past the roof using long reaches, toe hooks and a hidden hold out right. Place another nest of good gear in a thin horizontal crack and punch it for easier ground. Enjoy a splitter 5.10a finger/hand crack with lots of face holds to the top.
Although this route is protected by trad gear, it climbs like a sport route. The only place you jam a crack is the much easier top section.
Watch the rope when you lower, it tends to get stuck in the crack.
