Wayne moving out from the top of P1, short of gear...


P1: Climb up a seam and then some moderate slab climbing to a bush. Sling the bush and climb past three bolts to a fine belay with good view of the climber's left of the main face of LK...two bolt ring anchors.

P2: Traverse to the climber's right, unprotected, then up on small quartz crystals and thin edges to the first bolt in a water streak. Pull the next few moves past a couple more bolts over 5.10 face. Follow gear to the top.

Rap the route and hike back across the face and out the CCC trail. Topping out the gulley is trespassing..


In Dillard on the wall facing LK proper...half way down the proud vertical section, 200' downhill from Hypocrite's Corner...


light rack through #2 Camalot, a few slings, and a few draws.

First pitch is fun & interesting climbing on creaky flakes. Second pitch is really fun. You could probably stop at the first tree and rap.

Also, Annie is "down hill" from Hypocrite's Corner.

The description above is unclear. Did this route recently and found quite a few bolts on it. Fun climbing though.

Maybe new bolts? I'll be in the area in a couple weeks but not gunning for anything in Dillard. Could you describe it better, currently?

I think the first pitch had 3 bolts in the last 40 feet on the face above the rhodo bush. The second pitch had 3 bolts in the lower portion of the water streak.

any info on the direct finish to this route? attempted it, but was too hard for my fat and weak med school self. Felt pretty 5.12 after the two bolts.
