A LONG pitch of fantastic face climbing that just keeps you thinking the whole time. Great rock, safe bolts, interesting moves and an out of the way location are a few good points. Some might say the grade is a little soft but i can't make up my mind. Put in your 2 cents and we shall all decide. But first you've got to climb it.

Climb up the right leaning crack to some tricky moves gaining a nice ledge. Up the face on good holds to another tricky spot over a bulge to yet another good ledge. Slabby climbing above, think underclings and small crimps, to an awesome horizontal crack. More crimpy footy stuff to what you might think is the top.But its not. One more "boulder problem", 3 bolts, to the top. Check out the hollow rock hueco then move up the tricky slab to the anchors.


The second route right around the corner,just right of Yellow Knife 5.10c


16 bolts to anchors with fixed lowering biners.
The route is long and suggests a 2 rope rap from the anchor. A 70m rope would do fine and I think if you swing right with a 60m (up hill) you might be able to lower to the ground or a ledge to walk off but be careful.
I lowered to the ground with a trimmed 70m and Im not sure how long it is now, i think its just over 60m, and i just touched the ground.
