1.Up the broad slab to the 12’ vertical white headwall at 9+. Opinions differ on whether the crux is the grunty headwall move or a tricky overlap midway up the slab. This pitch looks mossy from below, but the holds are clean and more traffic will help.
2.Angle slightly left up the hanging slab at 5.7 to a 5.9 finish. A gorgeous pitch and immaculately clean.
3.Tighten up your laces for the 5.10 enduro pitch. Right off the bat is a reachy bulge that slows most suitors, even with a bolt at their face. From there, work through endless crimps, smears, sidesteps and bolts - 14 and I doubt you'll skip any!
4.The angle backs off, but enjoyable face climbing continues toward the large fir tree with a 5.9 crux bulge. Several overlaps are protected by small cams.
5.More rambling slab climbing with bits of 5.9. Use the clean rock and bolts to guide you.
Rap the route with double ropes (50 m minimum). All belay/rappel stations are double bolts.
