Description

In the bottom third a tenuous mantle got my attention. You can use the crack and flake to the right of original start also. The first pitch is mostly a hand crack with excellent protection.

Second pitch climbs up through a wide crack containing chimneys, OW and roofs. Nothing harder than a 5.8 with great and varied protection.

Top out and rap south face.

Location

Pass the Peak itself on trail until it branches left on the first streambed. Stay near this until you find cairns heading mostly up to the base of the alcove. This climb is right of a prominent chimney on the NW flank of the peak. Stay right as you get near the climb on the rocks avoiding the bushes. There is much potential here.

Protection

.5 to #5 with doubles of #1-#4 camalots; Large nuts. Anchor at first pitch to bottom or continue 2nd pitch to top and rappel south face and walk back. Until an anchor added soon.

Did a variation to this starting further right and traversing across a flake to link into the upper crack. Did you guys look at this at all? Pretty fun, a little sharp. Same grade I think.
