This is another Clevenger classic.  Good route finding skills help keep this route at a more moderate grade.


This route starts right of the left edge of a big ledge/flake just uphill from the start of Quiet Desperation and South Crack. This one-pitch route ends at the first belay of Quiet Desperation.  Either continue up that route to the top of the dome or do a short, unprotected pitch up to South Crack and follow that route.


There are four protection bolts and one belay bolt. Marginal gear placements may be found between the bolts. Gear is needed for the belay which is shared with the first pitch of Quiet Desperation.
