DescriptionTouted as a bit dusty in the guidebook. More like completely covered in powder mold from top to bottom with some big, scary, loose flakes just below the roof.
I am no stranger to a little dust, or choss. However, this was the dirtiest pitch I have ever done. Needless to say, I bailed just below the roof and have no plans to try it again.
Anyways, here is what I know of the route.
Pull 5.11- moves through a grungy steep section to a very dirty, mold covered 5.9 slab. If you have allergies or are worried about contracting a respiratory disease, try not to breath as you paw through spore covered edges and side pulls to reach a sandy horizontal with death flakes above.
Although I am not exactly sure what happens above this point, the route steepens and most likely contains the crux. However, the rock didn't seem to be improving.
Worst route I have been on at the Obed. Not recommended.
