Climb up sustained WI4ish face to the pillar. The pillar only connects at the top and bottom , as it flows over an overhanging rock wall. It has only one known lead ascent and rarely comes in fat.


This route is located near the far left end of the general hillside. Once you see it, you'll know you've found the right one. Rap off.


No fixed gear. Bring screws and a few slings.

This great climb has seen its first known lead ascent. Jonathan Baldassarie got it in great conditions from the pictures I saw. Nice job!

The conditions were finally right for a go on this awesome line. Congrats to Baldy for leading this beautiful line! We have been waiting for this moment for 4 years!!! Can't wait to get on it asap! It may be years before it comes in this good again.
