DescriptionI guess the approach scares people off of this excellent route.
It does tend to be wet on the first approach bit and might seep on the first pitch.
This is a great hot summer day adventure.
Pitch 1) start up ledges to gain dihedral, great cracks and stem box. 5.9 40-50m
Pitch 2) original corner gets really dirty, but still worth doing, 5.8. There is a 5.9 variation that is also good to the left. 30-40m
Pitch 3) sitting on top of the "Scratching Post", down climb past another anchor and start up a long crack system, 5.7. I think we made a gear anchor, 30m
Pitch 4) Fantastic long crack pitch! 40m? ends at 2 good bolts, 2 old bolts on the right, 10b
Pitch 5) thin cracks traverse the face to the left, a bolt protects where the flakes are weak, continue up the good crack reached on the left to bolted anchor. 5.9 or 10a
Pitch 6) continue up crack till you have to transition into face climbing past 2 bolts, getting to the 1st one was the crux for me, making the move at the 3rd bolt is the 10c A0 or 11a move, pretty short but committing feeling above big ledge( there are good holds above this), followed by more 5.9 crack to bolted anchor. 11a or 10cA0.
Pitch 7) slight right traverse and stay left of bulge, then right around right facing dihedral to tree with slings at top.5.9, 20 or 30m
