Approaching the crux


Ascend up intermittent cracks and awesome knobby face climbing to a low angle bench before a slightly overhanging thin headwall. Layback up the tips crack in the right facing ramp/corner clipping three bolts until you have to traverse right to reach the next crack. Granite voodoo with small holds, techy sequences, and some try hard will get you through the crux. Luckily, there is a bolt right at your face as you are doing the hardest moves, so the route climbs pretty mellow with a nice clean fall. Single bolt anchor supplemented with an extended #2 or #3 placement.


Route starts on left side of formation and heads up the steep headwall and crack above.


single rack to 3", double 1 and 2".

A 70m rope is just long enough to TR/lower/rappel.
