Description 

This are has awesome alpine granite with short pitches varying from easy to Thank God, I could top rope that, run out 11c. There is also some nice looking, multipitch routes on the right side of the slab.

Getting There 

The approach is the same as for the other Hagerman's Pass climbs. At the base, there is a low angle, splitter, finger crack with anchors. That is how I found it and knew I was at the right spot.

Climbing Season
