Description

Another gem on this wall. Ascend the juggy right leaning ramp left of Left Ski Track. Plug a finger piece and step up on jugs to clip a bolt. Pull the bouldery crux, clipping a second bolt mid crux if you wish, to a sweet mantle, one more piece and then send a left leaning seam to a final bolt and then more left to a two bolt anchor. There's another two bolt anchor above that for The Heathen.
P2 traverses up and left past two bolts, 5.6, to the two bolt anchor for Green Arch. Two single rope raps to the ground from there. *Don't rap over Green Arch! There is not another rap anchor there.

Location

Left of Left Ski and The Heathen.

Protection

Few pieces of gear and a few bolts.

The second pitch is rated 5.9 and after the first bolt moves right and then up to a gear belay slightly above the bolts atop Green Arch. The easy ramp at the end of pitch 2 could be taken for another long pitch to the top of the rock, as was done on the FA, instead of rappelling. Sep 12, 2017

Did P2 today, which according to the topo clips the first bolt of the "Powell Variation" then goes back right to a second bolt, then up to the gully. Mucho rope drag so I back cleaned and then climbed directly up from the bolted anchor using a distinct two finger crimp pocket, much better that way but a little R to the lone bolt. I've included a pic from the old book in the photos. Mar 31, 2019

Also to add to Tradiban's beta, the third bolt on P1 is above the crack/seam as opposed to below and left as it shows in all topo. Crux is short, only a couple moves, and extremely well protected by two bolts. Get on it! Apr 1, 2019
