Description

Lots to offer: face + overhang + undercling; crimps + horns + slopers + jugs.

Difficulty grade uncertain, because as of June 2018 we have not heard from anyone who ascended it fully cleanly. We've gotten reports from two climbers who each said they'd done all the moves, but did not yet have the endurance to link them all together for a complete send. So if you do a complete send, let us know so we can give you First Ascent credit on this page (provided you also tell us your estimate of its difficulty).

Start under right side of small roof about 15 ft up which is under right side of high overhang. Roughly straight up (5.9+) to that roof. Next diagonal left to under lowest point of high overhang. Diagonal up right a on wide crack a few feet, then exit that left up into the overhang. Once into it, diagonal left a few feet, then diagonal right to top out.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber or someone setting up top anchor.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2018. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
