DescriptionThis is a 2 pitch route (3 pitches next year) which starts on Midas Touch and diagonals out right to climb to the upper ledge system near the top of the cliff. It is on the right side of the Trojan Wall.
1st PITCH (85 feet) - 5.9+**/***
Climb the first pitch of Midas Touch to get to the "cactus ledge". Move the belay to a separate set of anchor bolts (no chains) on the right end of the ledge.
2nd PITCH (85 feet) - 5.11+****
Step out right off the ledge and climb up onto the slab. Continue straight up the slab on good holds to a difficult blank section around the 4th or 5th bolt. After this thin section begin trending right to the steep open book corner. Climb the right wall of the corner with a bit of difficulty. At the top of the corner move back left with some powerful moves to the big hueco (crux). Once at the hueco traverse a bit right and continue up to the belay. FUN!!
3rd PITCH (85 feet)
Not Finished, Missing Bolts, No Anchors!
From the 2nd pitch belay, a 70M route will reach some high ground that can be scrambled off easily. A 60M rope would require more down climbing (only about 5.0) or make 2 rappels.
