The first pitch makes for a nice little climb in and of itself if you're in the area doing some of the other moderates. I have not climbed the second pitch, so feel free to chime in if you have.

P1: Climb 60 feet past 6 bolts on attention getting slab (5.10c).

P2: Climb over the imposing roof system above (apparently 5.12c).


This 2 pitch route is on the far right (downhill) end of The Headstone, between The Vortex and Haus Flake. It is the leftmost of the 3 bolted routes starting up a steep slab under a massive roof system.


14 bolts, two bolted anchors.

I have tried the second pitch and found it to be pretty damn unique, and pretty darn hard. It would be a great boulder problem... too bad it is 80 feet off the ground.

Yeah, I remember it being really weird. You kind of can't think about it, otherwise you will convince yourself that what you are about to try absolutely won't work.
