Description

I haven't climbed this route, but having looked at it, from top to bottom, it looks thin and sustained. The obvious line is to follow the bolts along the vertical north-facing wall, near the arĂȘte at the west end of the wall. I saw an old "bail biner" at the 4th or 5th bolt, perhaps where the crux lies. The wall is rather exposed to wind from the west and north.

Location

Walk north 100 yards from the saddle at the top of Fern Canyon on a trail and down a bit under the west-facing wall of the Mars Block, around the corner to the north face. The route is apparent.

Protection

This is a bolted route with 6 bolts. There is a chain hanging from the anchor, I am not sure what condition it is in.
