Same start as for Peace Pipe on an ear-shaped pocket underneath Pow Wow. Stick clip first bolt and traverse right on large huecos before climbing straight up to the roof. Instead of traversing left as for Peace Pipe at the 3rd bolt, continue slightly right and vertically over the roof on new bolts to the headwall until reaching the anchors of Ghost Dance. A more natural and direct finish to Peace Pipe making this a full length classic.


Starts under Pow Wow and finishes on same anchors as Ghost Dance.


6 bolt to 2 bolt anchor. Recommended skipping the 3rd bolt or unclipping it after clipping the 4th bolt to reduce rope-drag over the lip.
