  • Description 

    The first 50' is the crux, climbing through licheny and rotten rock. From there, move up and left past a large tree to get on the main slab.

    The main slab is heavily featured and consistently steep. Keep going up until you are on the ridge, the climbing is the same for 50' horizontal in either direction. This was a wonderful solo!

    Location 

    Getting to this route is the hardest part. Looking at the entire feature from the saddle on the Fern Canyon trail, there are three distinct slabs separated by vegetated gullies. This climb is the farthest climber's right (north) of the three. Bushwhack down from the saddle or up from Bear Canyon trail until you are at the base.

    There is no distinct ending to the route, for the descent downclimb one of the notches that breaks the ridgeline. From there, hike down to Bear Canyon trail. This makes for a fun addition to the other Fern Canyon climbs (Nebel Horn).

    Happy bushwhacking!
