DescriptionThis doesn't form every year, but when it does, don't miss it!
Climb the slab to the column, then up this to its top. Step right to an unusual, flat slab that stick out from the face to form a ledge -- the "Launch Pad". Follow bolts through two huge roofs to the top.
Originally, the route had three roofs, but one of these fell.
A few cautions (which apply to all the routes here):
- The columns need to touch down and thicken before climbing them. A near miss occurred on this route, which was led when it barely touched down. The leader belayed on top. The second followed and stepped onto the Launch Pad, at which point the entire column collapsed into the river.
- The rock is choss, so it's wise to inspect the bolts on rappel before attempting to lead this route.
