Including for completeness sake; it's always been busy when I want to try it. A classic Gunks "face" climb.


Straight up face across from 1-800-Stick-It Arete; stay ten feet left of crack with tree. Easy walk-off.


Plenty and easy to place. Bolted TR anchor.

The guide book by Marty and Mike show a different route up than this page does. They have the route going much further to the left which might explain the 5.9+ rating. I too thought it was easier than a 5.9+ but I stayed more right which had way bigger holds than the left.

This route is close to a deep crack that is great on hot days because it feels like A/C air coming out of the crack. On the other hand be aware that this route takes much longer to dry after a damp day. Some really slippery holds at the bottom in the mornings.
