Description

The route follows the crack system up and to the left and swings back to the right towards the end. There is a tree immediately at the top of the climb to set up an anchor to rap down (not the biggest tree) or you can set up a static line about 20 feet in off a massive tree to set up a top rope. The crux is the overhead ledge at the top which makes you heel hook to get to the end. Use alpine draws to extend the slings to reduce rope drag.

There are 2 bushes along the route to steer around - added character (very 80s!)! Still a bit dirty but would clean up nicely.

Use directional if top roping to avoid swing.

Location

The route is immediately to the right of Gift of the Kneebar and follows the crack system up and to the left. 2 Bushes are growing in the crack system so work your way around it.

Protection

5 pieces of gear. 3 cams (#.75-2), sling around bush in crack system, 1 large hex. Use tree at finish to repel down or to set up anchor.

A lot of choss, be careful. Few big rocks are moving but we couldn't remove them. Dec 4, 2017
