Warning Access Issue: Peregrine closures and approach trail issues DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

Summer Break is one of the most aesthetic features of the cliff, a gleaming golden and orange bottomless dihedral looming above the approach trail. The route shares a start with Raindance 5.9, a solid mental warm up for what lies above. This route is was is left of Summer Solstice, an offwidth present prior to rockfall. 

P1 5.12  ~ 120 ft. Climb through Raindance and continue upward wading through low angle terrain moving towards a large roof to the right of the dihedrals entrance. Plug some gear in the roof and blast through a small overlap to gain a wild stance inside the dihedral. Stem your way past 2 bolts, encountering a break in the corner and  mantle to a nice belay ledge.

P2  5.11c ~ 50-70 ft. A short but stout continuation of the dihedral. Epic moves lead you to boldery roof sequence protected by a bolt. Pull the roof and gain a small stance with a bolted belay. Stop here or continue 20 ft through easy climbing to a much more comfortable stance. 

P3  5.10c pg-13 ~ 120 ft. This pitch is WILD. Move past complete and utter choss, to find a pleasantly suburb splitter leading to a bolt and thin cruxy slab slab sequence. Be heads up about this section. This pitch is totally worth doing, classic setup with a real sting in the tail. Will clean up with time, as they say in Vermont.
