There's the second pitch.

Always check road conditions and peregrine closures MORE INFO >>>


This route climbs a right facing dihedral with an obvious chimney halfway up the first pitch. It has some interesting moves on the first pitch and the second pitch is mostly an easy scramble.

Pitch 1: Climb up the dihedral (stay in it) into the chimney and exit to the right. Follow the dihedral until it ends and then climb up a short section of face to a large ledge (5.9).

Pitch 2: Follow easy climbing up and into a right facing corner on the right of a large outcrop (5.6).


Walk towards the far end of Crystal Wall and before it rounds off look for the right facing corner with some moss and an obvious chimney.


A set of nuts and single cams to 4"
