Description:

Left of serenity crack. P1 - 4th class w/ 1 move of 5.7. P2 - 5.7, P3 - 5.7, P4 - 5.8, P5 - 5.9. .. The climb begins up a dirty corner up to a large ledge and 3 bolts. Then continues up a small crack across a friction face, to a tight hands crack, up a corner to a tree. From here you go left across a ledge to a series of large flakes (only use for the 4" and 3.5" cams). Climb up the flakes, moving left up to the 3 bolts. (hanging belays from here on up). Pitch 4 continues up the flake/crack system with some great laybacking and jamming up to a small roof underneath the next belay the roof takes a .75 camalot to protect and the moves are great. The last pitch continues up the crack / flake system to a tight hands crack (5.9) and then finally after the crack goes left to the 3 bolt belay. Rap directly down the last 3 pitches, then down to a tree and finally to the ground with 2 ropes. THIS CLIMB IS IN THE RHOMBUS WALL PEREGRINE CLOSURE AREA AND IS CLOSED TO CLIMBING JAN-AUGUST.

5 out of 5 stars Crowds

3 Other parties were on this climb while we were on it, but it was still an awesome route! We free soloed the first pitch and I got to lead/combine pitch 3/4. It was an amazing climb from pitch 3 to the top with perfect cracks all the way up! An easy 5.9 with the crux just being the last 10 feet or so.

3 out of 5 stars .

a lot of wandering for a so-so route... pitch 2 was soaking, even in October. Pitch 3 was pretty cool, 4 too, pitch 5 just had 30 feet of stellar climbing. Felt soft compared to just about every other valley 5.9, maybe I just am better at that size? Still, worth the trip, but maybe not the crowds (took us 3 times to climb it because of a long queue).

5 out of 5 stars good line

The overhang on pitch two is considerably harder when it has water flowing.

The three upper pitches have excellent crack moves.

4 out of 5 stars good time

fun route, good day in the sun. Don't get stuck behind slow parties! We lost almost 2 hours to the couple in front of us! The pitches above the tree belay are rad, and I wish the .75 section on the last pitch was three times longer! So good!
