Difficulty: II, 5.6

Description: 10 long pitches. It can be done in in as few as 6 with simul-climbing and running pitches together. The leader should be very comfortable leading runout slab at 5.6 before starting up this climb.

A series of jams, liebacks & stems are all found on this route. Size ranges from fingers / hands to chimney.

Rock & Ice #50 (July / August 1992) features a topo and short article on page 112.

DESCENT: walk off to the right of the summit.


Follow the prominent triple cracks up middle of the face that lead directly to the summit.


Protection: One rack including a wide variety of up to #4 Friends & chocks for the many parallel cracks. Hexes generally do not work well. Take lots of runners.

This route is closer to 1,000 feet tall and is definately not R rated. It eats up pro. There is only a few sections that are slightly run out.

Only climbed the route once, back in the mid 80's, but, I seem to dimly recall that it wasn't that R rated for a climber used to harder run out routes, but, do recall run outs, and, do recall thinkin' a 5.6 leader might be pretty sketched on some of the route. For the 5.6 rating, I'd call it R or PG. For the 5.10 climber used to that type of climbing, perhaps not.
