Description Suggest change

This route was put up ground up rope solo.  12 bolts or less per pitch. 2 or 3 pitches to the ridge. One rope.  It is possible to down climb off the back, but it will be exciting at the least.  Pitch one:  Start at the high point at the base of the slab.  Look for the high bolt.  Layback, crimp, and smear your way up and left.  Mid way up a group of large plates is lodged.  Tread lightly or climb the direct bolt line to the right(perferred).  About 34 meters to the rap rings on the ledge. Pitch 2/3:  Behind the tree climb the shallow prow.  This is the better pitch(s).  Crimps, bumps spears and good friction lead all the way to the top.  As the headwall steepens above the last bolt (crux) look for good holds to the top. 2 raps bring you to the ridge with one rope, then one rap to the ground. 

During the process of setting this route, an amazing 4th grade teacher who had suffered from mental illness lost his life at the age of 39.  In his short 39 years he has changed numerous lives of children and adults in our community.  This route is dedicated to him and all those who suffer from mental illness.  Matt you will be missed.
