Getting ready to mantle onto the crack

Check NPS for Closures


Reach high and pull on. Climb the crack up and left until it is possible to mantle onto it. Now delicately climb the face to the top.


Lots of pads

Guess again, FA Brent Kertzman, 1991... Without a pad. I named it "Slant Eyes". We refered to the boulder as the "Mini Marker".

Eric, This route is tall enough with some committing moves higher up for pads to really matter, not that it really matters... Even with pads this route is committing and pushes into a dangerous zone. In the end just stating the style it was originally bouldered.

There have been huge chunks of rock that have come loose since they burned a sash pile here a year or two ago. The start now is ricey and crumbly choss. Probably not V3 anymore and probably needs some huge clean up at the start.
