Description:

p. 1 (5.10a, 180 feet) Step off a boulder onto a slick face and up past three bolts, then break out left along a flake. Move up to the headwall, following the left line of bolts through brilliant alligator skin. A small roof caps this sustained pitch, ends at a two bolt anchor. p. 2 (5.8, 80 feet) Move up to a bolt, then break out right on easy terrain to a blunt arete on the edge of a chimney system. Follow bolts up to a bolted belay in an alcove. p. 3 (5.10a, 150 feet) Struggle up the chimney and break out right along a pretty seam in a right trending right facing corner to a good bolted belay stance. Some gear is useful on this pitch. p. 4 (5.8, 60 feet) Follow a line of bolts up and slightly right from the belay to another big belay ledge below the final headwall. p. 5 (5.8, 80 feet) Move the belay right to another good bolted stance. Above you is the finish to Days of Future Passed. Go right, around the headwall and ascend a hidden line of bolts to the summit and belay in the beautiful pothole. Watch for suspect rock on this pitch.

Descent Options:

Locate the rap line on the back of the formation, there's bolts near a sturdy tree. Use double ropes.

4 out of 5 stars Endgame

My last route of 2008, a good "end." Expect fantastic climbing, lots of bolts, and a gorgeous setting. No one around today, we started after noon to stay in the sun. First pitch is the money, it's sustained and throws a lot of different moves at you. NOTE: go left when you hit the headwall and another bolted line breaks away right.

5 out of 5 stars wow again

this is a classic, for me... :)

I enjoy this thing more every time I climb it.

you can slot a piece at the start of p3 but it takes more energy than it is worth to me...

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Bolt 9 chopped on first pitch, Since we were at our limit we bailed. No problem for stronger climber who can make it safely to bolt 10.
