Description

If ever there was an All Star, Hall of Fame, Legends climbing team this is it. Too bad the route isn't longer with better climbing.

Pitch 1 - climb up a small right-facing dihedral and face and belay at two bolts.

Pitch 2 - Traverse up and right to a short headwall with three bolts(crux) and arrive at a small ledge with two bolts. You can belay here or continue up about 30-40 feet to a ledge with a gear belay and a bush/small tree.

Pitch 3 - Climb more or less straight up from the ledge with the bush/tree skirting several small overlaps to low angle slopes(5.5).

If you belayed on pitch 2 at the double bolts you might not make it to a gear belay at the top of the pitch. There is a single 3/8" bolt for a belay if you are out of rope. If you belayed on the ledge or have a long rope you can reach a gear belay where the climbing eases.

Location

This route starts from the right edge of the approach ledge used by Thin Air, Undisputed Truth and Tourist Trap. These climbs are on the left margin of Mountaineer's Dome.

Walk off to the left and down a brush and scree-filled gully back to the base.

Protection

Bring a rack of pro up to 2".
