A lovely way to begin the day at Lonely Challenge area. A shallow right leaning dihedral system with comfy bolts and airy toes. Careful footwork will stem you up with little difficulty.

Begin at the smooth face with slopey ledges ramping in from the left. A few tricky buldges carry you through the midway technical crux. Blind jugs are hidden throughout.


The bolted right leaning line in the ripples just left of the obvious arete. Right of Eternal Flow.


10 bolts plus anchor with chains. The leaning nature of this route requires a follower to clean, lowering will put you 30ft right of the start.

Coming up the main talus slope stay RIGHT in the larger and more consolidated talus, AVOIDING obvious worn switchbacks in the middle (slippery and sketchy scree). About halfway up the slope there is a large pine that you can go around on its right. Switchbacks marked with cairns and logs start here and continue up to the wall. Belay is a flattened stance. 20 minutes.

Sunny in the morning, full shade starts early afternoon. The narrow gully stays cool.

Great route with fun tricky moves on rock that keeps improving the higher you get. Lots of low juggy feet to offset some pretty thin hand holds. A much needed warm-up for the area and it felt very well protected. Sep 1, 2016

Definitely soft for the grade. Really fun warmup for Eternal Flow although cleaning it is a real bitch. Jun 23, 2018
