Approaching Pulpit Rock

Description 

While approaching from the West on the Ridgeline, you'll take the lightly worn trail that leads directly to the base of the wall. The obvious slabby crack runs up and to climbers left. About 70' up you'll see bolted chains as the the first anchor (3 bolts/chains as of August 2017). End of second pitch let's out to a 10' ledge where you can untie and walk to the summit about 100' east.

1 rope needed.

Location 

Northwest face. Obious hand/offwidth crack. Follows this hand crack gully until first anchor. Then pitch two follows the crack feature up and right until a sloped ledge with a 2 bolt anchor about 90 ft up.

Protection 

Single rack of cams to 3inches. Single set of nuts. Few hexes up to 3" come in handy especially for P2. Lots of loose rock so this can be quite heady for the new trad leader. Bolted belays. Mixed protection.
