Steep face. PUMP up to a ledge, then to the top of the cliff.


Center of the main wall. Right route on the large cliff that sits closest to the trail. Very orange rock

This route is just right of 'Last Lonely Eagle' and is more sustained, IMO. The climb does not end at the big ledge with the cold shuts, it continues up another 20' or so.

While the route is well bolted and the last section short, I've climbed it in two pitches as the last section is right at my limit. Between the ledge and strong winds, I wasn't comfortable with the lack of communication.

Great, sustained route.

This route is a stellar hard 10. Great movement, power, and sequence throughout. I think if it weren't for the ledge halfway up, this would climb would get three stars from everybody. As it is, you can bivy during your onsight.

Really nice route. The move right off the ledge is pretty hard for the grade. It is well-protected but if the wash is full or the wind is up communication with your belayer can be tricky.
