Description

The most obvious line and an old classic. Great for beginner leaders. Go up the giant pillar in the middle of main wall to the huge ledge. This pitch is run out but covered in holds - many ways to go. Second pitch finds its way off the top of the ledge and up through a variety of finishes. The bolted finishes are steep and juggy, the normal finish is to traverse right until you can break up and over the final bulge.

Location

Park near the base of Main Wall. Rap the route.

Protection

Bolted rap anchors at top and at the top of the first pitch.
