Start up the face just right of East Walls first pitch from the ground. Moderate moves will take you past three bolts. After the third bolt, make a direct traverse right past the thin crux, heading for an obvious corner feature. Easy 5.6 climbing up this feature/corner will lead you to another short traverse on decent holds to the anchor of End of the Line.


Right of East Wall, left of End of the Line.


Cams, singles to 2". Nuts, 1 set.

The crux moves of this route are very well protected, however the 5.6ish corner system after the crux is not. You must climb up quite a ways before you find gear, which is good because it sets up the follower so they don't risk a sharp pendulum after unclipping the last bolt and moving through the crux.

Though this corner is super easy climbing, it is often full of leaves, so watch your step. If you fall from the top of the corner near where the first gear is, you could deck if theirs slack in the system, or come really close. Either way, you're going for a good 70 footer. Climb slow and keep a clear head.
