BETA PHOTO: The line.


Overhanging blocky arete for the first 3 bolts. (High first bolt. Recommend stick-clip. The clipping hold for the first clip is cracked as well.) Reach a small ledge where there is a large block with a bolt in it. Clip it (optional) climb over the block and right to a tall slab. Thin climbing leads to good edges and pockets through the final steep bulge.


On the far right of the cove area. Cross the bridge and turn immediately right (south) and walk for a couple hundred feet to access the trail to the wall. Route starts just north of a large fir tree and right of a large left-facing dirty corner.


11 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with chains. You can access the anchors for TR if you hike around the right side of the cove and go up a climbers trail to a ledge system and traverse north to a large pine and rap into the anchors. There are other anchors for different projects but only one has lead bolts.

I added chains to the anchor at the top. Will add a bolt down low next chance I get.

A steep boulder problem down low leads to a long slab with great movement. Will clean up nicely with some more traffic. Definitely worth checking out.
