Bolt Failures - Donations Help MORE INFO >>>


Too often ignored, this moderate line takes you through some consistently engaging climbing over quality rock with thought-provoking gear placements. Start up the big chunks just left of the last bolt line to a stance, then bust it up the slight overhang (crux) to an awkward crouching stance below the roof. Step out right into a slightly dirty crack with lots of jugs into an airy position. Continue up the slab, trending left along diagonals below another roof. At a weakness in these overhangs, go straight up, then step out right and continue traversing to the Sky Ladder anchor. It is very difficult to retrieve the gear on lower or rappel, a second climber should follow and clean the route.
