3rd pitch dihedral


1st pitch over the roof is 5.10. 2nd pitch has good 5.7 fingers. 3rd is the obvious dihedral at 5.8. 4th and 5th pitch rock quality not as good. 6th pitch has a bolted belay, climbing goes left through steep white rock with 5.11 fingers. Tricky small stoppers protect off of the belay. One or two more pitches of alpine feeling 5.7 to the top of the first buttress. Rappelling from here or continue to the second buttress to top out, another 7 pitches.


Starts at the center of the east face, fall line down from the obvious dihedral 300 feet up. 1st pitch starts under a roof with lay backing and stemming that feels about 5.10.


Some fixed anchors at belay ledges. Crux pitch has a bolted belay, respecting the potential factor two fall from tricky climbing just above it. Rappel with 2 60m ropes.

Route finding is fun. More than one way up this. Climbing is great but the 11r pitch is super R. Chose to aid through it when the only nut placements broke...
