DescriptionThis is a really fun route, offering great protection and a variety of movement. It really is a gem for this area.
The first 15 feet climbs the obvious face (5.5) to a slanted ledge (anther 10 or 15 feet). Work your way up to a small broken face crack system that will lead left into the main crack (5 easy) placing gear where desired. The crux of the climb is getting into the crack off the ledge (5.9).
Once in the crack and over the first bulge, work your way directly up the crack, enjoying hand jam after hand jam. Small ledges and nobs are on the face for helpful feet Climb the crack for another 50 feet until you get to a small ledge. Take in the surroundings, and enjoy the view.
From the ledge, mantel up and over another bulge (5.9 awkward) to a great stance. Climb the rest of the crack for about 15 feet, and the anchors await.
