Erik Wolfe hitting the crux hold on the FA


Climb past an arch and balance/reach/jump (?) through the crux roof (5.10d). The moves through the roof may be more difficult for those of shorter stature. Continue up slabby moves and fun moderate climbing to a second tricky move and a unique hold,then balance up to the anchors.


Located on the far right side of the Saddle Peak/Corpse Wall formation.
Just right of Route 10.


5 bolts, chain anchors.

The 10+ move on this climb is the bouldery roof move right at the the first bolt. Crux difficulty may be somewhat height-dependent and the rating is not yet fixed while we get a consensus. Fun, moderate, balancy climbing after the roof. Climb still has a fair amount of lichen, but clean holds and footholds are present and some traffic will improve it.

Pretty fun route. The start was real tricky, but I used a small flake down and left instead of the left sloper and it made the move way easier. I'd say it's a 10d but all the other moves are 5.9-5.10a.

Interesting moves and good protection. We've repeated it on several occasions, a height dependent, one move wonder that is much easier if you're 6 ft. or taller. Take care clipping the 4th bolt as a fall onto a ledge is possible.

The first move is the cruxy 10d move. Its totally protected and very much height dependent. If I was two inches taller it'd feel like no more than 10a.

The rest of the climbing is great too. Slabby 9/10a climbing with an awesome finger lock in the middle.

Great climb! Definitely had to work on the first move a few times. At first it felt stiffly rated, but eventually I thought the grade was fair.

Agree with the above comments about lichen and 4th bolt. It looks like it's been cleaning up nicely.
