Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>


This climb can be toproped after leading Tiny Tim, or it is a fairly well protected lead. All the lead bolts and one of the anchor bolts were replaced by the ASCA in 2011.

Start up a right facing corner and then undercling right under a small roof to the first bolt. From here make some very difficult moves to gain the shallow double cracks. The crux is 5.11 and is probably getting harder as the potato-chip edges crumble away. Once you're in the double cracks follow them up and exit to the right of some hummocks and take easier terrain to the anchor.


Pro to 2" but mostly small stuff. The main difficulties are protected by bolts.

Tried this route last week. The beginning is easy but as noted in the description the rock is flaky. There are virtually no holds to get you to the cracks beyond the first bolt above the under-cling section.
