Description

An extremely fun climb in an extremely cool spot. I had always wondered it this was a cool climb because of where it was or what it was. It is so much of both! This route would be a classic at any sport climbing area.

Steep climbing on mostly jugs with a few holds that are merely decent it is a true enduro route where the difficulty is in the accumulation of moves rather than one individual crux. As it is with many endurance routes the last moves will seem the hardest. In this case, that is a dramatic mantel from the steeps to the slabs.

Location

Hovering above the left end of the slabs is a steep overlap, The White Zone climbs appropriately through the white patch in this overlap.

Climb the dike route to gain the anchor below the steep wall.

Protection

Belay from a 2 bolt anchor below the start.
5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with fixed lowering hardware.
I also placed a piece of gear to keep me safe while getting to the first bolt which is high up and difficult to clip.
