Description

START - About 30-40 ft right of the "toe" of the slab, at a clean slab with a L-facing corner (photo) on the right (with lichen on the part of the slab that is next to the corner).
To the left of this clean slab a line of trees and bushes runs up the cliff 15 +/- feet and provides what might be an alternate start*.

P1 - Climb the clean slab ( crux, 5.5 - 5.6 PG-13 / R?) to a large flake. From the flake's top climb directly up to a bolt, then a 2nd bolt and on to a double bolt anchor. 115 ft 5.5 - 5.6
NOTE: A rap with a single 70m reaches the ground; a single 60m would probably reach the top of the line of trees.

P2 - Move up and right onto the pegmatite rock. Climb this up and through the "headwall". 200-210 ft 5.4 - 5.5 This pitch may be broken up; a good belay is under a small overhang that is 15-20 ft above the lose-looking 3-4ft flake-lieing-on-the-slab. (which may get "trundled off, if it is actually lose)

. * ?Alternate Start? - Scramble up the line of trees and step right onto the slab about where RW is in the photo.

Location

30-40 ft right, and slightly higher than, the "toe" of the slab.

Protection

Std rack - medium sized cams especially if breaking up pitch 2.
