AKA “Book of Dread.” 140ft to gear anchor. Starts on broken face and easy ledges and moves into right facing dihedral with hand sized crack. Protects well. Short easy chimney/offwidth at top that can be avoided by climbing face to the right. Save larger gear for protecting inside the offwidth. Intermediate 3 bolt anchor allows this to be done in two pitches. This route is particularly prone to small rock fall directly onto the belayer. Wear helmets and be careful of loose rock.


Name painted as “8 Heartbreaker.” Two rappels or walk off to climber's left.


Gear to #4. 3 bolt anchor mid-way. Gear anchor at top.
