A spectacular second pitch variation to The Dude anchors, head directly up from the anchor towards a small corner. Pull up the face to get under the roof, then some awkward but good moves to pull the roof. continue up easy ground on the arete to the anchors.


This route starts at the top anchors for The Dude, and is the right of the two bolted lines.


quickdraws, chain anchors

A really fun route, that definitely warrants more traffic than it probably receives. Lots of good holds and rests if you just keep moving. The middle of the three bolts after pulling onto easy ground is missing its hangar, so bring a not to loop the bolt, BD 0.75 or 1 to place instead, or just run it out, as the climbing at that point is maybe 5.9 at most.
