This is a super classic pitch.

Easy face climbing past three bolts leads to a series of two mantles protected by bolts before reaching a good-sized ledge below the stunning, overhanging headwall proper. Move right after the second mantel (5th bolt) to a crack that cuts through the face going up and left. Use a long sling on the 5th bolt to reduce rope drag. Plug in a #1 Camalot to protect the first moves before clipping a couple of closely spaced bolts before firing straight up on great rock with beautiful holds and movement. Finish by angling left and doing a mantel into a little alcove and on to a ledge with a two bolt anchor (there is a second two-bolt anchor to the left).


The center bolted line on the Headwall currently.


10 bolts and #1 Camalot which is somewhat optional. A strong climber could probably do without.
