Austin the the second ascent and brushing quest.

Once you locate the cairn standing below the small roof area, head directly up through the right face, small, open book aiming for the pine tree 20 feet off the ground.

Head through the overlap and past a wide but easy crack below the short roof crack. Pull a few strenuous 5.8- moves through the roof, and follow the crack to the end where a nice belay with #3 and #4 size Camalot belay can be found. Scramble 30 feet climber's left to a slung block and full strength rap ring near the large pine tree at the top of the slab.


Approach climber's right from Meadow Dome around the base of the cliff line. When you reach a grotto of mossy cracks past some nondescript slabs, find a large cairn with Creek style name plate at the base. It has been brushed but would clean up nicely with traffic.


Single rack with an extra 0.5 is nice, and a hand piece is mandatory for the roof.

I tried unsuccessfully to find this route on my way back from Coleman Direct.... It looks super cool, so I'll be excited to come back and give finding it a more honest effort. Is the cairn on the trail just right of Hemingway but before the turnoff for the Labyrinth?
