Description [Edit]

One of the best 5.11 pitches around. It ascends a face, seam, and crack just left of an exposed arete, making for exposed climbing. Much harder for short people.

The route dries quickly except for 1 tiny smear of moisture at the base of the seam, which is, unfortunately, a key foothold. Not to worry, as the 5.8 to the left can always be climbed (even when wet); from that anchor, scramble right to this fixed anchor.

Go up the short crack and mantel onto a ledge. Climb the face past 2 bolts to a horizontal below a seam. Follow the seam through an overhanging wave (crux, bolt) to a bomber jam, then follow this excellent crack for 60' to a fixed anchor.

Location [Edit]

Walk right along the base of the cliff to an open area with several large submerged boulders. There is a beautiful wide crack in a left-facing corner that leads to a triangular roof 50' up. Begin 4' right of the corner at a short crack.

Protection [Edit]

Single set of nuts and cams to 3". Double up on purple Camalot. No micro cams required.

If you're short, it really helps to pre-place a draw at the crux to make the clipping easier. Aug 23, 2016
