Description

"Direct" climbs between "Lost in the Sun" and "A Bit Short". The START [Var] is the same as "Lost" but moves RIGHT and climbs between a large block and large flake (see Topo/Photo posted to "Main Slab").

[Var] There is an alternate start about 30-40 ft up-hill on the right that climbs a slightly fractured crack system (5.5-5.6R), steps left (5.6-5.7) and climbs up and over a 12" overlap.

The key feature on this climb is the beautiful 6th pitch (or 5th, depending on how long you make the pitch before), which climbs clean, white rock with 5 bolts. A slightly easier, and better protected version of Whitehorse's "Sliding Board"!

Protection

Usual rack, draws for bolts.
