Description Suggest change

This was apparently an aid climb from the 1960s, we did it free in 1973, ground-up and onsight with nuts for protection. There was one old, fixed, soft-iron piton at the start of the main roof, about 40 feet above the ground.

Climb the large, obvious, right-facing dihedral for 20 feet to a short bulge (5.9) and an easy slab. Just above the slab lies the crux, liebacking Tagger-esguely left around the big roof to easy ground.

Location Suggest change

Hike up to the base of Hawk-Eagle Ridge.  The route starts just before the giant chockstone below Cinch Crack, 5 feet left of the bolted line, Lips Like Sugar. In the photo of Cinch Crack area overview, it is the dotted yellow line.

Protection Suggest change

A small standard rack of cams and wired nuts.
