Description

Beta. A fun easier warm up route for all that is Coal Pit. Well protected, surprisingly good rock and climbing. This is the fastest/best way to reach the catwalk that cuts across the face.

P1. Slab directly up to the first bolt (visible on the lip of a rooflet) or traverse right underneath the roof to start. Pass the roof via a weakness just to the right of the bolt. Trend leftwards slightly past another bolt and a shrub in a vertical slot. Continue up the flake with bolts to your left, up into cruiser terrain. When near the shrubby ledge system, trend right to a bolted anchor near a pine tree. 6 Bolts.

P2. Mantle and side pull up to a clean short slab. Climb the slab and break left after the second bolt on positive crimpers. Mantle into an alcove with a little bush. Place gear and make exposed moves further out left around a bulge. Climb straight up easier terrain. Bolt anchor is on your right near a bush. 3 Bolts.

Location

Approach: Starts underneath House of Cards. Skirt the base of Coal Pit Buttress. Hike past Stiffler's, past the DNF, to the far eastern part of the base. Stop in the fresh talus before heading uphill through some dense brush. Look for a bolt on the edge of a overhang.

Descent: 2 single rope raps on bolted anchors.
