This was probably the first technical/modern ascent of the Camel in recent years, and is tallest line. Full disclaimer: I started up this thing years ago but bailed due to rock quality and haven't been back on it since. However, it does follow a nice natural line and looks like it could be improved greatly with a little clean-up effort.

Start down the hill on the north side.

P-1 Climb the obvious left facing corner up and left past loose rock and into some pockets. Continue up past a 10 crux move and to a gear belay in a shallow alcove/ledge (I believe).

P-2 Climb diagonally up and right around a roof feature, continuing diagonaling up and right to top out somewhere in the vicinity of the chimney separates the "head" of the Camel with the "body".


North side of the pinnacle. Get there by walking around down and (skier's) right of the SE arete. It's a little bushy but surprisingly easy to reach the base of the route ~ couple minutes.


Standard rack. No fixed gear.
