This is a great rock climb. Most routes at Obed have great position but this one may have the best. Perched above the confluence of the Obed and Clear the view is incredible, the stone is perfect, and the climb is as good as it gets.


Locate the obvious arete upstream of the walk down.


2 bolts protect moves down low and one at the crux otherwise the route takes good trad gear. All you need are three/four cams to safely climb this route. Needs a bolted anchor.

Cams in order:
1 .5 camalot
1 3 camalot
1 yellow metolius (finger size)
1 purple metolious (tiny)

I climbed this on 11/25/16. Absolutely no signs of chalk anywhere. But this route is a total classic. It needs an anchor.
