Despite the ugly looking moss, this line has some really nice moves, and just enough moss has rubbed off to reveal the crucial holds.

Start from either the left or the right, move up to the bottom of the groove - nice rail on the left. Work up into the dihedral. Either slab & mantel, or stem up to bomber hand jams. Shift left onto easy ledges. Head up just right of the pine tree to the steep finger crack. Find the jugs and head straight up to a good ledge.

On lead, we went left here and scrambled around to the summit. On TR, continue straight up: the final headwall is 5.9/5.10-ish, and could use a bolt for protection.


Between "Eye for an Eye" and "Buddha Bukstein"


Nuts and cams. Doubles in the .75" to 1.5". 30' of webbing if setting a TR after the lead.
