Excellent line up one of the best looking walls in the Park. Some strenuous laybacks, short powerful cruxes, and best of all; many rests. Though those rests might not be enough for the final crux! Mixed protection. Great gear placements inbetween bomber bolts.

There is a second pitch that goes at 5.9+ PG13. It climbs the amazingly exposed prow above and would get climbed a lot more if it was easier to access. No bolts, just a couple heads up sections. Single rack to #4.


Located several seams right of 'Gods Own Drunk'. Look for the bolts in the start. Double rope rappel.


Small to Medium gear
Chain anchors.

WOW, Pumpy Liebacking! One of the best sustained pitches I've climbed anywhere!
The 2nd pitch is not to be missed, great exposure.
