Pulling through the crux

Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. MORE INFO >>>


Climb the middle-right set of bolts on the south face. The crux is an interesting bulge move right before the second bolt. Kind of a one move wonder route, as the climbing is the easiest on the face (5.5ish) after the second bolt.


2 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

A purple (.5) BD C4 worked really well for the initial crack. The first bolt is a ways up there, so this piece is nice to have.

We top roped it yesterday kind of sketchy scrambling to the top and getting to the anchor but totally doable. The crux to me felt like the start with the lie back and high foot hole but after that super fun and short great for warming up

The first bolt hanger has a crack all the way through it, below the bolt.
