DescriptionOne of the best views of the Baker River Valley that I have seen is your reward when you take a trip up this one. At about 80ft this is the longest route at upper crush by far. I enjoyed every inch of it. To start you surmount a series of bulges, the last one at the 3rd bolt being the crux. I find it most reasonable staying left of the bolt. Once past that, choose your own adventure up the pretty, highly featured slab leading to a final headwall. The climbing on the headwall is engaging but not particularly difficult so enjoy it, take in the amazing view, and maybe see if you can capture it in a photo. Might be tough...
Ps. Named for the ground up trad style of our first ascent (though I did break left and clip the anchor of always so not to die) and the amazing sight that greets you at the top :)
