DescriptionOverall, the route is a fantastic alpine trainer. A few stretches on pitch one are a little Cliffs-of-Dover-ish which is fun if you are in to that sort of thing.
50 meters of dry tooling on good and bad rock. 10 or so bolts. Strenuous for a stretch. Great dry tooling. Positive hooks for nearly the whole pitch. Finishes on an ok ledge after stemming along a 25' bolt protected dirt couloir.
40 meters to the high chain anchor. Three bolts protect the climbing from the ledge to the 75-degree hummock-filled dihedral. Excellent hooking and pro along the right wall of the gully/dihedral. Fully tool able and front-point able grass makes this easier pitch a lot of fun
The route is well equipped for top-down (self-belay) top roping.
