  • Description 

    Approach: Hike up to the start of Twilight Zone, and continue 50' right along the ledge around onto the west face. Spot a left-facing dihedral with a finger crack and a small pine tree. This is the route.

    Climb the corner, go up a slab, then up a short headwall to the 2-bolt anchor at the top. Belay from here, then rap the route.

    Not a great route, but worth doing if you're in the area and you brought some trad gear with you.

    Protection 

    Nuts and cams to 2". There is a 2-bolt anchor at the top of the climb.

    What is holding up that humongous guillotine perched above the approach to the start of this climb?

    The crux on this is near the bottom in perhaps the first 20'. Gear up to a #2 Camalot in size is all you need.
