Description

This less-travelled enterprise ascends the Main Face, passing to the left of the
eleventh grade corner area. Pitches 1 and 2 can be combined if steps are taken to avoid rope drag.

P1 5.8 65': Begin up the right side of the block's slabby eastern face. Climb a flaring finger crack (5.8) or the wide crack to its right (5.6) to a ledge. Skirt the steep terrain above by trending rightward onto a slab, then circle back left and belay on the sloping ledge.

P2 5.6, 55': Trend left from the belay, following cracks/flakes up the short, steep face. Belay beside a tree.

P3 5.6 90': Above the tree, climb a short, steep groove to gain a small ledge (50'). Continue for 40', ascending easy terrain to reach a comfortable ledge. Belay here.

P4 5.6 95': Climb the long chimney/gully above. Belay where the gully changes into a leve, narrow corridor.

Awesome route. A bit mossy in spots. Needs a little love. It has everything: face, slab, jugs, finger cracks and chimneys. Aug 19, 2018
