This climb starts like it's neighbors, as a hard to discern runout slab route. After the 1st belay though, things change (for the good). The first pitch climbs the far right side of the Snow Slab, using the thorn filled slot, stemming kept you out of their reach here. After the belay ledge, exit out left up the steep wall. Look for good steps up and out, to anice juggy finish. Clip the bolt, and wander left over the slab to a crack. Protect here and there, us you move up the narrowing crack, to a steeper slab. Find a tree, and belay. The steep section of climbing off the belay ledge is loose, so beware.
Crux move was getting on the slab after the roof and finishing the route. If you rap, aim for the anchors of Evening Falls, and rap again, and again.


Far right side of Snow Slab.


one bolt on route, runners and small to medium gear for the route. There are no slings around trees anymore, so bring your own or downclimb and traverse to the midway anchors on Evening Falls. Helmets are mandatory.
