The Climb 

Begin by climbing the crack on the right margin of the face (My Three Friends) for 10' and then make some balancy moves out left into some huecos to reach the 1st bolt. Runout but positive climbing leads to a horizontal break (gear possible here) and then up to a second bolt above which lies runout climbing on solid brown patina.


This route climbs the right edge of the huecoed face right of Stemski past two widely spaced bolts.


2 bolts (1/2", 3/8"), pro to 2.5", 2 bolt anchor/rap (shared with Stemski)

Good moves on mostly good rock but the runout nature ensures it will be a TR for most.

The climb can be started directly from the ground without any increase in difficulty and a good 1/2" piece can be placed in the horizontal halfway up (as well as a medium cam 5' to the right). Two stars out of five.

I've climbed this route three or four times. the route is more fun if you avoid the starting crack. It is a bit runout, but no harder than 5.9 imo

I agree with 10b4me - no move is harder than 5.9 here, but every one is tons of fun!

First bolt is now 1/2" SS with Camo hanger.

the opening face moves are both the crux and most enjoyable sequence of the climb - a piece of pro in Three Friends could somewhat mitigate risk of a nasty fall before the first bolt.
