Description

This route is truly stellar. With a little cleaning, it could potentially become an area classic. The line is fairly visible from the approach. stellar P2 hand crack is all by itself in the middle of a large face.

P1: shimmy up an interesting but somewhat dirty squeeze chimney to a ledge. Walk over to a long, vertical, hand crack, and get into it! This has somewhat tricky gear and thins out a bit higher up. Belay from a huge ledge, 100', 5.8.

P2: fire up an incredible, gear-devouring hand crack that stands all by itself on the large summit dome with belay options, 100', 5.7.

Location

P2 is clearly visible from the gully approach. This is high up on one of the left side formations.

Descent: round the top of the dome, and find a slightly tricky downclimb, climber's right, through plenty of flourishing pricker bushes and teetering blocks.

Protection

Standard rack up to a #5 with doubles in #1, 2, and 3.
