DescriptionPitch 1: Is known as "Pump Up The Jams" and goes at about 5.10a. If you are a fan of Knob Goblin and Fool of a Took you will absolutely, positively want to get on this first pitch. Starts with a layback crack system that protects with Black Diamond #1 and #2 cams. Insert a good sized nut or two after the crack peters out and stand up to gain a bolt. Enjoy some engaging, steep face climbing on solid crimps, with a few savior jugs, for a few more bolts and be ready to run it out after the last bolt on easier, yet demanding terrain. The pitch ends at a blobby knob of rock on a shoulder with some webbing around it. Feel free to rap off here if the 5.13 climbing that lays ahead is going to make you fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Pitch 2: Wail your way up a bitchin' 5.13 layback sequence that roughly follows an incipient crack feature that takes no gear. Follow wicked fun and sporty holds located on the top blob of rock that sits on the summit of the formation. Protects with a few bolts.
