DescriptionFun, exposed climbing in a backcountry setting just 30-45 minutes from the car
P1. Climb a hand crack past a bolt (and/or place a cam) to a ledge. From here make your way up the right side of the face and arete to a bolted belay .10b 80'
P2. Climb up the arete, stepping right at some point when things get thin, then back left. Really fun pitch and felt pretty heads up (maybe I was just gripped from the exposure). 15' below the top of this pitch I found myself in a 8' ow section, but you could probably bypass it on the face. Belay at bolts on a big ledge below a nice boulder problem in the sky .11b 80'
P3. This is a short pitch, 25 feet maybe. Right off the belay it's on! Hug, slap, and tickle your way up the steep (overhanging) pillar in front of you for a few bolts and enjoy the wild position .11b 25'
Recommended to link p1 and p2. It is possible to link all 3 with a 70m but a combination of rope drag and a ledge below some hard moves on p3 convinced us not to.
Rappel with 60 or 70m rope
