Description:

This route starts before you're at the obvious part of the monolith, and starts at the slabby section on the approach. This starts in the middle of the wall, left of the first coldshut about 12 feet up. You keep traversing and following the bolts. This can be done in one pitch and rapped with a 60 meter. There is a 3 bolt belay about 18 meters up. I recommend doing it in 2 pitches to reduce rope drag.

4 out of 5 stars a good warm up for the monolith

Easy way to gain access to the anchors for the more fun routes to the climbers left. Highly recommend trying some of the variations to climbers right after gaining ledge.

3 out of 5 stars Odd climb

Follows a strange line and pretty poor protection.

Cold and windy day. Too cold to feel my fingers.
