Nice well protected face climbing. Consistent at it's grade.

Steve was a close friend that I met in his twilight years. Unfortunately his twilight years were his late 20s. The climb was finished in a beautiful sunset.


From bottom of the North Descent Gully walk approx. 100 feet climbers left passing the first slab. Start at the base of a slab approx. 30 feet climbers left of Sea of Green/Rock Candy's left facing corner start. Rapping Rock Candy from the top of the cliff puts you here as well. A line of bolts go up and right finishing at the Rock Candy pitch 1 anchor.


7 bolts and a medium cam. Shares 2 bolt rap/ring anchor with P.1 of Rock Candy. What a view!

The cam placement is sort of "down, behind" a flake. (Between bolts 5 and 6 ??)
