Description

Great Route for the area! Start at Proboscis, but angle left onto the left side of the prominent arete and nose. Climb the crack 15 up and continue up past a bulge until you reach the base of the nose jetting out of the cliff (crux). Once you reach the ceiling, climb the airy traverse to an opening, then up to the top where three trees can be used as anchors.

Location

Start just to the right of a tree 4 feet off the ground and left of proboscis. The route is around the arete from proboscis, on the left side.

Protection

Takes Plenty of medium sized gear (0.5-1 C4's) of which doubles are useful. Bring small nuts for the bulge mid pitch and a red C3 or equivalent for after the roof.

Great rappel anchor at the top of the route. The same anchor can be used to rappel off of Proboscis. Aug 29, 2016
