In this pic, ISDC is barely right of center and we...


At first, this climb is steeper and more tightly bolted than ISDC. Climb up formerly dynamited rock, using big, awkwardly located, fragile holds. Once on natural, dirty rock, follow a thin crack with optional placements for small cams. A fixed Lost Arrow with a short old black sling is found in this section. The chains are located at about 80 feet.

The second pitch (5.6) follows a wide, left-leaning crack, eventually passing one bolt (40 feet).


It is about 20 feet left of ISDC.


Because of fragile holds, I recommend stick-clipping the first of six bolts. Tiny/small cams, plus one four-inch cam, are optional for p.1; #4 and/or 4.5 Camalots desirable for p.2.
