Description

For this route, go past the start of goats do roam to the next buttress lookers right, about 200 ft up hill. It is characterized by compact looking pink granite of higher quality than previous route. This starts in a shallow corner immediately above a large pine at base of cliff. Climb corner till it splits, stay left pull left past a bolt, moving up to a bulge and another bolt. Pull through this and onto a fun slab above and another bolt. Climb up this to a two bolt anchor on a small ledge. The second pitch moves slightly right then up another slab by arĂȘte past another bolt and some gear, ending on a small ledge with a two bolt belay. Third pitch climbs straight up past a pin, then moves left around a small bulge, bolt onto a clean face. Follow this up and left, look for good gear in small slots and a couple more bolts to a semi hanging belay belay a steeper bulge above. The route may one day continue above this but at the time I had run out of battery power.....

Location

Rap off anchors with a single 70 to ground.

Protection

Bolts and gear to medium. I found offset nuts and cams to work very well
