Description:

This classic route folows the right-facing dihedral to the right of a black water streak. Follow the crack up and around a bulging roof, then up the twin cracks on the face above it to a belay. Easy scrambling leads up to the ledge and a belay. From here, head up the easy slab aiming for the right side of the large roof, and follow the right facing dihedral to the top. Several variations at the start can increase the difficulty to 5.8, i.e. the face behind the big pine, and the right side of the roof instead of pulling into the twin cracks on the face.

5 out of 5 stars Blustery day

Great route protected from the wind out of the east. Afternoon sun was terrific. Ice on the slabs but not on this line. Combined first two pitches. Bottom start is water polished, great pro, super fun roof. Second pitch has OK pro to cracks and is then bomber. I would rate the upper dihedral top out way harder than 5.5 even by Granite Mt. sandbag Std's. This is a fun enjoyable route and worth repeating.
