The start is in a left facing corner with a very large scary looking detached block.

Climb gingerly but awkwardly onto the block and fire up the off fingers corner. After a tough 30' section, the corner switches to right facing, going from thin hands, good hands, and fists with a couple of pod moves.

Terrific varied climbing with a couple of face holds for rests.


A short way right of where the approach trail reaches the cliff is High Plains Drifter - look for a large detached block below a corner and hand crack.

Double ropes to rap - a single 70m will not make it.


A large rack from fingers to #4 camalot, heaviest on 1-3 camalots.
