Description

Good alternative for initial pitches of Cosmic Wall.
Start on the climber's right hand side of The Ogre, approximately at the level of P1 of Cosmic. There is a flat spot at the start, in the middle of uphill slope along the base of the Ogre.
P1: 5.7, ~ 100ft, many ways to go, mainly face climbing with a few small cracks and horns for pro. belay at a small ledge with a very small pine tree.
P2: 5.9, ~150ft, this is the fun pitch. From belay start up right trending flake system. Protects well with cams AND nuts. Belay on a larger ledge with a larger pine tree. Or continue and link with the following pitch.
P3: 5.0, ~ 60 ft, many ways to go, easy climbing, belay on a large ledge with a large pine tree which is also a possible belay for Cosmic Wall.
P4 and P5 are 5.6 and are shared with Cosmic Wall.

Location

Right hand side of The Ogre.
Same descent as Cosmic Wall.

Protection

Alpine rack up to C4 #3. Slings for horns. 60m rope necessary for rap from the top.

Great variation on the cosmic wall route. However it was certainly no more difficult than 5.7 and a partner and I completed the climb in only 4 pitches. Aug 11, 2017
