Project Work Resumes Nov. 13 Following Summer Shutdown
On Tuesday, Nov. 13, crews will resume work on this project, starting with rockfall mitigation on US 6 from mile points 260 to 272. Remaining work, anticipated to be completed in April 2019, includes:

The climbing begins easily up a hanging open book. Clear a slight bulge to gain an easy slab and then a no-hands stance on a sloping ledge. Move left to the speckled-purple arête, then make big moves to reach a horizontal break below the crux. Make a big reach to a hidden jug, then campus out the lip of a big ledge, eventually mantling onto it for another good shake. One last long span leads to more good jugs at the anchor.
