Downpour (5.8), south face of Jimmy Cliff. Photo b...


a low angle dihedral, with liebacking, finger jamming, and face climbing


On the southeast corner of the rock, an obvious rounded buttress starts a third of the way up the rock. This route follows a low angle dihedral at the left end of that buttress.

A tricky route to get to. We roped up and climbed some mid-fifth class moves to get to the ledge at the base of this climb. Combined with the walk off, probably not worth doing unless you want to climb in the sun and avoid the crowds. A beautiful area though.
