Dave enjoying the very nice temps.


This is probably the most difficult of the routes on the west face. It looks harder than it turns out to climb.

Start out on thin holds that just keep appearing when you need them to keep the route at a moderate grade. The foot holds are a bit crunchy to start. The thin section relents after the 2nd bolt as you drift slightly left. Find jugs above. Near the top, the wall seems to bulge past vertical and gives you that nice, satisfying pump that lets you know it isn't slabland anymore, Toto.

Rappel from a 2 bolt anchor.

Thanks for the info, Rich.


This is currently the 2nd bolted line from the right (10th from the left) on the west face.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with rings.

Nice climb. Start is the crux - thin.
