Description:

Climb the first 10 pitches of the "Wapiti Mainline" The 11th pitch and first new pitch heads up and trends right following similar features as the previous 2 "dragon's back" pitches. Climb through a short but steep crux slab sequence (5.9) up to a comfortable belay. The 12th pitch starts by traversing right again across a small, sometimes wet groove. Mantle up onto a small handrail on the steep slab and continue trending right following the bolts(5.9). The lucky 13th pitch starts with a small traverse to the left and then straight up the smooth slab to a rap station just below the summit trees(5.9). 21 new bolts were placed on lead to complete this new "classic" variation finish to the "Wapiti Mainline" FFA Aaron Hamilton & Allan Hepples 07/07/07
