Description

To left side of the bubble wall is a sexy off-width crack in a corner. Hand stack and stem up a cruxy 5.9 start to some fun pocket pulling. After the fun climbing is over, the route continues up loose and crumbling rock over precariously stacked death blocks to a dead tree. If you touch one of these and send the pile trundling down you may kill your belayer. The anchor is indeed old but looked solid enough to rap from.

A smarter, and more enjoyable way to climb this route would be to skip the choss and traverse right to the tiny bubbles anchor.

Location

The right arching crack in the dihedral, immediately left of the bubbles.

Protection

Wide gear to 5. Tri-cams if you want to protect the easy pocket pulling. Alpine draws useful to extend the bolts.
