Description 

Warning, There is one isolated area of loose rock, easily recognizable & avoidable; majority of route is solid. Details in the text below.

  • **BETA- ONSIGHT SPOILER ALERT***

1) pull on to the gently overhanging wall with a left hand sidepull-jug

2) plug a #1 in to the obvious pod

3)make a couple difficult moves clipping 1 bolt, move into a no hands rest- another bolt at rest stance.

4) Climb up then left onto the smoother and gently overhanging wall (loose block here- Dont utilize it for feet when you transtion to the left wall- I'll clean that up next spring!)

5) The upper crux sequence has begun and persists through 2 or 3 more bolts; a challenging move will be necessary to stare the anchor in the face.

Good pump, Great movement. Delightful environment & position on Guye peak. Faces south.

I recommend doing this route, then moving on to the south rib for a solid outing on Guye!

Location 

This route is on the isolated (from the rest of guye) crag, near the base of the south rib. If you are looking at the large west face, it's just around the corner to the right, down low. You can view this cliff from the west-most parking lots at summit west base area.

Protection 

Bolts & #1 Camalot. 2 bolt chain anchor. No top out.
