Handjams and liebacking with glassy feet lead to an alcove. From here, jam the left-hand crack to the top of the formation.


This diagonal crack starts just to the left of the West Alcove and trends left toward the bottom of the bridge.

Steeper than it looks! The crux definitely comes near the alcove. The rest of the climb is very dirty. As of this date, the old bolts at the top of this climb are not the greatest.

Another Don Garrett FA, on lead, in the late 1970s. We added the bolts later for top roping.
