BETA PHOTO: The crux area.


1st pitch: climb well-protected slab left of the large dihedral (The Tube) to the mid-point anchor (2 bolts with chains).

2nd pitch: continue up a slab to a short headwall while encountering some friable rock at the crux, staying directly below the crux bolt is the best rock. There are top anchors with 2 bolts and chains.


It is left of the large dihedral.


12 bolts with mid and top anchors, both anchors have 2 bolts with chains. You can walk off to ledge with trees at top and descend via easy terrain on left. It may be possible to link both pitches with a 70 meter rope.

You can easily do the route in one pitch with a 70m rope. A 60m rope will not reach the bottom of the climb in a rap from the 1st anchors, but you can scramble off to climber's left from the end of the rap. A 70m may not make it either. The crux did not seem that friable, but it is difficult. You better like slab climbing if you do it!
