Description:

Climb begins 30' right of Fote Hog. Go up crack to large ledge. Belay there. Then climb up a hand crack in a right facing dihedral to small roof. Topout and walk-off to the right. OR -- after clearing the roof, instead of exiting right, step left to go up a left facing dihedral with handcrack (Fote Hog finish), and then scamper over the top to longer but easy slab walk-off to climber's left.

Descent Options:

Walk-offs.

4 out of 5 stars Western Saga

Very good pitch for the grade. I like the variety on it and of course the roof pull which was fun and physical. I did a gear belay on the obvious ledge and we soloed up the short crack to the left for the walk off, no worries. Good to combine with Ball Bearing.
