Description [Suggest Change]

Pitch 1: Climb the low angle, easy terrain up through the mossy cracks. Near a tree with a webbing anchor on it, head up and left into the wide chimney like feature. Gear belay under the roof in the alcove (big gear/chockstone). 120' (5.5)

Pitch 2: There are several moderate variations on this 2nd pitch. This way seemed most straightforward. Head up and right through the roof, and climb the steep hand/fist crack (crux) to easier ground to the top. The "Ski Tracks" aren't as good as they look from the ground. 3" cams good to have on this pitch. Careful around a loose flake around 2/3 of the way up this pitch. Gear belay/sling large blocks. 120' (5.8)

Descent: Walk off climbers right.

Location [Suggest Change]

20' right of Spare Rib.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Doubles 0.3-3 one 4" piece, single set of stoppers. Triple Camalot #3's would be nice. Gear belays.
