Description

Follow an obvious chimney system and corner on the left side of the main black colored wall. Fun and thoughtful moves lead to a two bolt anchor on a ledge. The anchor is accessible from the top. Hike south and down, then contour around a ledge system about 10' below the top. Keep contouring around until you see two bolts on the small wall to your left. You can use this to get you down to the anchor which is down from the bolt at approximately a 45 degree angle to the north, with a small ledge to stand on.

Protection

14 bolts.

[Hide Comment] Did extensive cleaning of this route and added a bunch of bolts. This is now an approachable lead for a lower end mixed climber rather than the necky outing it was when I put it up. Nov 29, 2020
