Description

Located on the Equinox Face - one of many options on a very featured face with fair rock quality. Down low it feels more fractured. Up high, the interesting knobs and texture are reminiscent of Bear Den or Big Slide, albeit much easier. It can be difficult to discern which path to take up, but they all have featured rock and fair protection, though you may have to dig. Its worth it for the beautiful view from the top.

Up featured, mossy rock to an overlap. Around this to a ledge under a ceiling. Break the ceiling in the center, then straight up on knobby rock to a ledge. Work up and left on more featured rock to where the angle eases back to a slab. Break through a bulge via a crack and work up to the trees.

Location

At the Equinox Face, start at a platform to the right of the lowpoint of the cliff, beneath a low overlap with a triangular cut and a ceiling about one third the way up the face

Protection

Decent protection - standard rack. Tricams might be nice if the cracks aren't cleaned out. Slings to minimize drag, as the angle eases back a lot. Fixed anchor may or may not be on a tree up high. Pick a good tree, as many are far back from the edge and could potentially make a horrendous rappel. Two ropes mandatory for rappel
