Description

The original route at the crag. Jim and I wasted nearly three hours on a misguided attempt to find an alternative approach to the cliff. Then I set off on an on-sight, ground-up ascent, jettisoning loose rock and clumps of moss as I went. I later returned to give the line a proper top-down cleaning. The route still has a bit of an alpine flavor, but it’s a good route for topping out at the end of the day.

Start with a short hand crack that splits a right-facing pillar, then follow slabby cracks up to a prominent roof that you turn on the left side (crux). Above the roof, traverse right on juggy features to a second roof. The route ends with a right-facing corner. Near the top, where the corner turns wide, move right to clip a bolt and finish directly up the face. There are belay bolts at the back of a spacious pillar top.

Protection

Full rack of cams. No wired nuts needed. Bring alpine draws for extending pieces below the second roof.

Can rappel using the Fire Break anchors.
