Great moderate climbing up the prow. Face climb up a seam to the 1st bolt. Continue past 2 more bolts, then left into a crack system. Follow the crack to a final headwall with a bolt to a belay ledge.


Prow just right of the large crack on the left side of the formation. Walk off.


quickdraws (4 bolts) wires and small to medium cams. Bolts are Leper button heads as of 3/06.

Not sure why this is only getting a 2 star rating. from most of what's out there is a great climb! Very slaby and the gear is very good after you get past the bolt section. Not sure why the last bolt is up there when the route should have followed the left side crack the whole way, but whatever. There are two belay bolts on climbers left at the top, look very new. There are also belay and rap anchors on climbers right as you go follow the right facing undercling flake at the top, but I'm not sure how far the ground is and we opted for the walk off. Great route if you're around there!

  • **Beware: hive of aggressive bees at the base of the climb. If you wander too far left (15 ft or so) from the base of the climb there is a large hive hidden in the rocks. The bees there are very aggressive, my group apparently got too close to the hive and they immediately began to swarm and attack.
