This could easily be one of the top v7s in the park. If you're looking to climb an obscure but easy to locate v7 you should really make the 3 minute downhill walk to do this beauty...

Walk under the smooth, obvious, aggressive overhang and find the two diagonal slashes. The line is straight forward and climbs up to the lip, and tops out either direct (preferred) or to the right. either way it goes at v7 and is brilliant.

Start matched in the lowest slash with feet anywhere. move up and right with intentions of gaining the prominent lip. Once the lip is gained, negotiate top out moves either direct, or to the right.


Walk under the obvious overhand. The bottom slash is the start. pad the slab behind you.

This is truly an awesome line! I agree with aaron that it may be one of the best overall lines in the park.
Sadly the bottom 4 feet were drenched when I was there...

If the bottom crack is wet at all it will make this problem far more difficult if not impossible. A must-do V7 for sure!

You need to get back out here and send this Travis! Next week! (2nd ascent!) You can give me some consensus on it too...
