Description Suggest change

Joe reports nice climbing on good rock with trad pro where you need it. 

2 pitches, rap with a single 70m 

First pitch surmounts the 40 ft wall.  Here you can walk again up to the next wall beneath a two bolt anchor.  Climb this hand crack to the anchor at the prominent Arete shaped ridge. 150ft

Second Pitch move right around the arete then stay on the arete proper clip a bolt at the blueberry ledge.  Here you can choose to go left (Curiosity 5.8var.) instead of staying on the arete proper to the top. 150ft

Curiosity 5.8 var.  as you stay left of the arete the ground steepens below you   good pro and one bolt as you make your way to nice fingers sized cracks.   the same anchor at the top. 100ft

[ Disclaimer- I haven’t climbed this route, I put it in at the request of Joe Cormier. R Hall ]

Location Suggest change

On the arete that rises from R to L below, and to the left of, the huge red rock slab exposed by rockfall.

Joe writes:

"If you hike to the big Boulder at the stream crossing before the bottom of Fatmans Misery on the Loop trail. 

Walk around the Boulder on the left and step over the stream and follow the flagging tape and cut trail to the rockslide. Hike to the top of the rock slide to the base of the arete on the left."

Protection Suggest change

Std rack, 70m rope useful for descent vs single 60m
