Follow obvious vertical crack system in the center of the wall.


From the Rite of Spring Wall, traverse right (about 40 feet) around the arête of the opposing, south-facing wall and half-way up a steep goat trail on the other side. The crack is a little hard to see until you clamber up.


Standard rack with small cams. Suitable trees at top for TR.

Looks easier than it is. The route is a bit dirty and there is some loose rock. About half-way up, you can detour right to easier terrain if you're getting pumped.

The first 15 ft are 5.6ish but then the rest of the climber is solid 5.9. this climb should definitely be in the main selections of routes. Do not miss it. Just follow the small crack. I will be adding pictures soon.
