Jimn Seiler on the cruxy upper face.


This route is located on upper Duncan's Ridge. It is located about 25 feet to the south of the dihedral route mentioned on this site. There were 2 bolts at the top of this climb, right next to a nice crack. These bolts have since been removed.

To setup a TR anchor, all you need is a few medium hexes and a some tricams. This route could probably be lead by loaded up on the pro right before the cruxy upper face.

The route begins with 25 feet of 5.5 rock to a small ledge system. The rock then become smoother with hidden edges. Follow small edges for 20 feet to the top. The easy variation is to the right, and the harder variation is to the left.


2 bolts for TR and a standard rack for a lead.

There are two bolted anchors at the top now. You can use either the anchors for Apples or Oranges to set a toprope. It's a fun variation and slightly more challenging than Apples.
