Working up the opening corner.


This route starts just right of Mohawk, and goes past 4 or 5 clips to joint Mohawk at it's last bolt and anchors, as well as final 10' of climbing. The crux is getting off of the ground for the first 10-15' into a tight, left facing corner. Stem and drop-knee. The right side fo said corner has a small amount of suspect rock.


6 draws to a two bolt anchor.

A little dirty in the corner, but fun overhanging stemming. A good step up after Mohawk.

Stay away from the rock on the right. It's not needed for the sequence. One or two more hard pulls on that piece of rock and it will tear a huge chunk off the wall.

This one just became a new favorite. Adding this to my warmup on the Center wall with Mohawk. Stay in the dihedral for 5.10d on the first 2 bolts. The sequence is tricky, but solid and fun once you get it!
