Description

P1: climb slab past 5 bolts and occasional gear 5.8.
P2: 5.10- bombay chimney, harder if you face the wrong way!
P3: easy ramp to 5.9 hands.
P4: 5.11- roof and sporty (3 bolts).
P5: 5.9 fists & hands over varied terrain - angles right, somewhat loose (PG13). Continue right on ledge (stay roped) to easy chimney for awesome summit views, then down climb to ledge and last anchor. Rap about 200ft (watch your ends!- I slid the knot down to the lip and had to do some shenanigans to get down- don't do that!!) then rap 120ft to the ground and a short walk back to your pack.

Location

begins below the notch on the south end of the buttress. Route faces mainly East

Protection

dbl set to #4, 1 #5 useful but not mandatory. 2 x 60M. All anchors are bolted, but not all are equipped for rappel.

Pretty sweet adventure on a massive monolith. Bit of goodness on every pitch. P4+5 very exposed. Awkward mantels through the crux pitch. Beaching myself onto that diving board is one experience I won't forget! Apr 5, 2017
