Start below the center of the X to the left of roof in a mellower overhanging section. Go straight up with some slight meandering for gear placements between bolts. You will go through a mellow roof near the top. Anchor is on big grass ledge.

From this anchor you can rappel with a 70m climber's right to the grass gully uphill from where you started the route. Otherwise, an 80m will probably get you down or double rope rappel.

There is potential to continue beyond the first pitch, which could allow for walkoff.


Pass the Guardian/Lost Wall and Aurora Slab gullies and drop down to the other side of a talus apron.


A single rack of nuts and cams to 1.5" for protection between 9 buttonhead bolts. 3 bolt anchor at the top. Anchor cord replaced 6/26/17.
