Description

Climb the central weakness up the middle of the face past a stump and a series of vertical and horizontal cracks to a communal anchor.

Var 1: The arĂȘte left of the main face. A short crux midway leads to large horizontals near the top. (5.9)

Var 2: The steeper right hand arĂȘte with a low crux. Be mindful with protection. (5.8)

  • Note: After extensive cleaning of the cracks, Dustin noticed sawed off branches low on a spruce tree above the wall, indicating the route(s) may have been previously top roped.

Location

The short south facing wall at the end of the approach trail, just left of a narrow gulley.

Protection

Standard Rack.
