  • Description 

    One of the best moderate sport climbs in the refuge and a must-do on any visit to Desperate Dome. Begin 60’ left of Fight Club and just right of Fistfighter and enjoy big moves on comfy, square-cut holds up the left edge of a triangular-shaped pillar. The technical crux is at the 3rd bolt but the pump factor may pose an additional challenge for some.

    Finish at the two bolt anchor atop the pillar or continue fifteen feet up a low fifth-class left-angling crack to a big ledge with a tree anchor. This anchor can also be accessed from above and makes a convenient TR anchor for The Warm Up or Fistfighter. -banks Banks 2016

    Four bolts, plus two bolt anchor with rap rings.
