Always check road conditions and peregrine closures MORE INFO >>>


Climb right crack of two systems. This one almost reaches the ground. Hard moves 12 feet off the ground are the crux but it stays interesting for the next 90 feet. From here on the climbing is fun but a lot easier. Cams to 3 inch and many wired nuts including brass or steel.


At the right end of the prominent roof on the west wall are two cracks. The left one starts about 60ft. off the ground. The right one is it and has hard moves to reach the crack.


Maybe one or two bolts (not in my notes) and gear.
