Description

This is unnamed in my guide, please let me know the name if it has been named.

This is a two-pitch route. I only did the first pitch, and it was a great warm-up for the area. This route is the second bolt line from the left on the east-facing wall.

Pitch 1 (5.10b, 80 feet?): climb up good edges and knobs to a small roof, traverse slightly to the right under the roof, then make a step left to get over the roof. The rest of the route is easier but still enjoyable all the way to the anchors.

Pitch 2 (5.10b): continue climbing up on knobs from the anchors of pitch 1. Apparently it gets easier near the top.

To get down from the anchors of pitch 2, make two rappels.

Protection

11 bolts to the anchors for the 1st pitch. I can only assume it's about the same or less for the 2nd pitch.

Throw in the Ragsdale is two lines to the right of this one and graded as 5.11a. I haven't climbed it, so I can't comment on it. Jul 10, 2017
