Right below what seems like the crux.


This route is not horrible but is not very good. It is not bad as a warm-up for other harder routes nearby, but it seems more difficult than the 5.7 rating given to it in the guidebook. It requires a lot of stemming. There is one fixed pin on the route, but it does not seem very good. It helps mark the route's location and can be backed up with a small cam. You can clip the first bolt on Eye Sockets... with a long runner. The crux seems to be at the top near the anchor. There is lots of lichen here, and a wide stem helps get past the difficulties.


This route is mostly to the right of Eye Sockets... but shares the same start. It ascends the right-facing dihedral with several small roofs right of Eye Sockets.... It is to the left of Koon's Corner and Fogline. Use the anchor on Eye Sockets... to descend and belay. You need two ropes to get down.


Standard rack to a #2 Camalot, 1 fixed pin, and extra small cams are useful. Use the anchors on Eye Sockets....
