Pitch 4


Five pitches of adventurous climbing. Wide is the name of the game, but edges and ways to cheat around the offwidth abound. 2nd pitch roof is stellar. Make sure to traverse right above offwidth after roof of second pitch. All pitches are memorable. I would recommend this route.


Left side of Elderberry Buttress. 2 double rope raps down joint effort. Climb right from top of route to find rappel.

An adventure in wide. Not too bad if you've got some style. In wide, 1 of 4, 5, 6 was plenty. Just use them where you really need them and you'll be fine.
O/w a double rack.
