Description:

Starts about 50 feet left of Holdless Horror looking for a 5 foot tall, 8 inch thick right facing corner at about 60 feet up the route. Climb up through the corner clipping bolts and placing gear along the way. Trend left to a ledge then zag right from the ledge clipping two more bolts before finally arriving at a two bolt anchor (230' from ground). Leave the anchors on a 5.4 runout to a crack, follow the crack to some harder moves at some bolts and finish to the top.

Descent Options:

Double rope rap from the first set of anchors or walk off dome to climbers right.

Didn't know about the third pitch. Did the first two and rapped down. Friction. Good nobs. Some run out sections.

4 out of 5 stars Great fun with an easy walkoff past a gorgeous waterfall.

Liked the varied climbing of the first pitch.

4 out of 5 stars Face climbing

at its best. The moves and pro just barely link together making for an interesting outing that a 5.8 leader would not soon forget. The cruxes are well protected but some of the 5.7 and and under climbing has some space.
