Description

Start with a hand crack for a move or two, and then stroll up an easy slab to the steep-ish face (at climber's right). Move higher up on the slab for an easier start on the steep section, which is to the right of the small pine tree growing out of the cliff. The steep climbing is a bit reachy and is sustained 5.5/5.6 climbing (i.e., crux). Gear can be placed after each somewhat-committing move (for the grade) on the steep face. Finish at the lookout area shared with Black Wall.

Location

This is to the (climber's left) of Black Wall's arete. Look for a 10' hand crack that leads to a slabby section with a steep wall off to the right. The small pine tree growing out of the cliff is a good reference point - the steep section with sustained difficulty (i.e., crux) is to the right of this tree.

Protection

A BD #2 Camalot (yellow) for the beginning hand crack. There are a few choices for gear on the steep wall. A red or pink tricam can work at the horizontal crack.

I would rate this route as "great" if it were longer. The rock is excellent quality. Nice short bit of crack climbing at the start then face climbing with good protection and stances to place gear. A couple of good options for variation on this face to increase difficulty. Jun 2, 2017
