Climb an easy section to a harder, beautiful dihedral to a large ledge. Upon reaching the ledge, it is clear that you are sharing this space with something wild. Whether you catch sight of these wild things (stalking your camp at night?), or merely evidence of them left behind, understand that you are a visitor in animal territory. Channel your beastly instinct to traverse the wide roof and hope for a tight belay if you slip here. Finish through the crux to the belay ledge and set anchors. Next pitch goes up a short and technical dihedral and around an easier roof to a flaring chimney. Embrace the juggy pockets and ledges, traverse under a protruding stone, then pull over and through the easy finish. Unleash a howl of victory to proclaim your dominance! Find a tree back about 10 feet from the cliff and left to set up the belay. Walk left and rappel from large hemlock on the way to Spider Rain, or walk right through thorny holly and briars and make a tricky rappel through a wide roof crack.


Right of Spider Rain, scamper onto a ledge before turning the corner.


Normal rack. A 6 helps protect traverse at the top.

hopped on this route and it was amazing!. varied climbing from the crack down low to traversing under roofs to hero jug hauling at the top. would be a classic pitch anywhere. we left a rap station on top. it's also possible to build an anchor with a #1, #2, and .5ish near the station at the top Oct 20, 2016
Clean, dry climbing on great rock. A very good outing. We had no issue with two #4s - some would prefer a 3rd. Mind the sharp edges and the rope snagging roofs when placing gear. Like most routes here, it could be done in one pitch with double ropes to reduce drag. The bouldery crux is over a ledge - it's protectable, but use caution. Apr 4, 2016
