Summit View

Description 

P1- Start up a short steep wide crack, this turns to the left and goes into a chimney/tunnel. Crawl through this for about 50 feet and set up a belay.
5.5 160'

P2- Climb up using natural gear placements, aim for the bolt line which is quite striking near the arete, killer rock, really quality moves. 5.10c 150'

The summit has a secluded feel to it even though HWY 14 is visible.


Location 

The first pitch faces south. It's at the top of the hill you just walked up. The start is the only wide crack that leads to a tunnel.

3 single rope rappels will bring you down the south face and back near where you started

Protection 

Standard rack to 4" QD's, some long slings nice.

60 m rope
