Description

Sustained fun moves. If only it were longer - (well it can be made lots longer, but going higher is mostly scrambling).

. . Still lots of loose rock on upper half.

Diagonal left up the crack, then step up right through notch. Scramble up to a convenient place to build a Trad anchor.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

FA first ascent? The listing of a Top-Rope first ascent does not imply that top-roping is the "appropriate" style for this route. If some party bolts this route and leads it and supplies a careful description of the size and metal-composition of the bolts and hangers - (by posting an Improve This Page or a Comment below) -- they wlll be given first-rank FA on this page. Also they can supply their own name for the climb (which is why currently this route has a "generic" name, awaiting installation of hardware).

Location

AT the right edge of the central apron of the (gentler) left side of sector Cosmiques - (with some broken loose left-facing ramps to its left and a more-than-vertical 25-ft-high face to its right).
At the right end of a diagonal crack going up right to left to a notch.

Protection

Leading: standard Trad rack. Long slings might be helpful for building anchor around protruding rocks.

No fixed hardware for top anchor or intermediate bolts for leading as of 2017.

Plan to bring your own equipment to leave behind to descend by rappel (unless you expect to down-climb the route).
