Approaching crux


This unique route traverses the amphitheater-like feature on Cap Rock. It starts on the left and follows a seam up and right past a bolt. It finishes with a steep exit move at a vertical crack below the "cap" of Cap rock. The gear is PG, not as bad as the name implies.


1 bolt, thin to 2"

I would say the gear verges on "R" because it can be difficult to place in the jagged-edged crack. Good stances are also minimal. The lone bolt is 1/4." Great route - 3 out of 5 stars.
