Description:

Located near middle of east face between Ball Bearing and Western Saga. Start up and left onto a ledge with a small tree and climb up a thin crack. Then traverse up and right along good positive hand holds to gain access to the roof. Make a long reach for a huge jug on the roof and pull up and over it. Belay at the big ledge above the roof. Second pitch climbs up and right following the crack system to a perfect finger crack and then a beautiful dihedral handcrack to the top.

Descent Options:

Walk off to climber's left, first to the top then down the slab.

4 out of 5 stars Five Six...

First 5.6 I have hung on in 7 years, must have been off my game. Excellent route that will really challenge the average 5.6 leader. May be a little height dependent.

4 out of 5 stars fun route except...

i still manage to make up new curse words through the crux, even though i've climbed it a couple of times.....but it's always worth it too.

4 out of 5 stars 5.6?

Might not have started on route... otherwise, it's sandbagged. It's not hard, but it's not as easy as 5.6
