Description:

A two-pitch adventure. Starts 30 feet left of the obvious crack/chimney at the top of the approach trail Midterm. 1st pitch starts on an easy ramp then into some wide/heady climbing. This is not hard (5.9) but make sure you are solid at the grade because pro is difficult for a short ways. Belay at the top of the chimney at some flakes. 2nd pitch climbs a primo left-facing corner with increasing difficulty. The crux comes up high may seem like "a sick joke". An awesome, uncrowded route!

5 out of 5 stars English taste like Tea.

The first pitch is good, the second better. Stuck my finger in a bat though. Carefull on those last few moves.

awesome 2-pitch route. 1st pitch is wide and pro is sparse but not hard if you are used have a comfort level with valley cracks. this climb deserves more stars than the book gives it.
