BETA PHOTO: Start of the route with the 5.9 v-slot.


This is a great climb that has its crux in the first 30 feet in v-slot/left-facing dihedral that uses a finger crack in the corner. The climbing becomes much more moderate after the thin fingers of the corner. At the top of the dihedral, move left to a good crack and go up to the horn. Move slightly left and follow the finger crack and up to a ledge. You can belay here or keep going up to the overhang and out its left side.


This is on the left side of the Vrain Child formation about 20 feet to the left of Vrain Dead which is directly below the anchors. Walk off right from the top and down the right side of Observatory Rock which is also the safest way to approach.


Standard rack with a large selection of small to medium wires for the lower portion and small to medium cams for the upper. Make your own anchor after about 70 feet or go for the top and set up at a tree. Move right from the tree for rappel anchors.
