This route is mapped out in Randy Vogel's book, but no mention anywhere else. Starts off inside a shaded area with a chimney. Fun climb. Set your pro high on the traverse to avoid getting your rope snagged. Extend your quickdraw at the end of the traverse to avoid drag.


This is right of Enter the Dragon in the Gunsmoke area.


small/medium cams and assorted nuts. Gear anchor. You can easily walk off to the right.
