Description

An excellent 3 pitch climb.
First pitch goes up the slabbly apron past 6 bolts to a bolted anchor.
Second pitch goes up knobby runnels and then up a slab and a left facing corner to a large ledge. Gear anchor.
Pitch three starts off with a high bolt off big boulder on the big ledge (it's off left a bit)..then up very easy terrain to the top. I went off right near the top on easier ground and belayed on the summit from a tree.
All three pitches are rated 5.8. This climb has good protection throughout and is a fantastic climb.

Location

Located in the middle of the Apron at Lost Eagle. Walk off right side. There are 5 bolted routes on the slabby first pitch of the Apron. This is the third one from the left, and the one with the most bolts on it (6 bolts). The other ones have 3 or 4 bolts only.

Protection

Some bolts, some gear. One bolted anchor, two gear anchors.

Make sure to head left of the runnel to the bolt on P2. There's a bolt on the right for Sizzle Lean that might lure you into 5.9 territory. The dihedral on P2 is pretty sketchy; the whole thing vibrates and is only attached to the wall by a small fin of rock. Be smart about where you protect it to make sure you don't pull the whole thing off the wall. On P3, I had to stack a few blocks on the ledge and could still barely clip the bolt before committing to the 5.8 move (I'm 5'11.) Oct 20, 2017
