Original Anchor atop,Cassin selection,anyone know ...


This route is named "A Laddin Sane" (a play on the David Bowie song). Thin face and laybacks up the concave wall to the thin crack finish left of the fist crack on First Aid. Powerful. -Mack Johnson

There are two pins located on this climb and share the anchor atop (3 cassin pitons) with the center right crack. There are some small copperheads/old stoppers and fixed pins in various places that give confirmation of early ascents.


Just left of the diagonal crack of First Aid. Scramble off left, or up the airy face above (5.8 or 5.10)


Standard rack to .75ish camalot and a #3 blue camalot
Offset stoppers/rp's/small to medium stoppers

Protection: wired nuts, fixed copperheads, cams to 1.5". Back up the 3 belay/TR pins with great wires. This would be R/X if led without fixing gear and slings. - Mark Johnson
