This is a great two-pitch or one long pitch route that offers great and varied climbing. If done in two pitches bring 8 to 9 draws. If doing one pitch bring 14 draws. Pitch 1: Start left of Isn't Life Strange on a good ledge. Climb up past two bolts in the gold face tending left to a corner. Climb the corner and arete up to a two-bolt anchor. Pitch 2: Climb straight up from the anchor into another shallow corner. Cool moves lead to a good ledge and small overhang. Climb the overhang on the left and then fire up the nice face to the anchor. Can be done in one pitch.

Descent Options:

A 60-meter rope makes it back to the starting ledge but not the careful lowering.

4 out of 5 stars Nice, Long Fella

Interesting climbing, slabby on bottom, overhanging in the middle, slabby on top. Watch out for a big death block near the anchors.
