Pale Rider


This route starts about 90' below the West summit of the cell service wall, on the backside of the spire. There are chains at the base and bolts with slings at the summit. This is a great route with good protection in an awesome position. After the first overhang there is a no hands rest ledge midway through the route. The crux lies midway through the second half of the route exiting a pod into a finger crack. This route could also be broken up into two shorter pitches with a gear anchor on the midway ledge.


There are numerous slabby routes to access the base of this pitch. Cross the river and travel to the right around the corner of the wall and hike up the talus 100' feet or so to see the start of the slab routes leading to this pitch. Expect about three moderate/easy pitches to reach the anchors at the start of this route. Either rappel or scramble off the summit to the east.


Gear to 2", a blue tcu is most helpful around the crux
