Description:

On the far right side of the formation locate bolts going up a white vein of rock. The first 2 pitch's go at 5.8 and climb some so-so rock. the first 2 pitch's can be done as one 60M lead. Pitch 3 ascend's up a short face then traverse's left on somewhat broken terrain to gain the head wall proper and belay at 3 bolts(5.8). Pitch 4 start's the meat of the route. Follow the bolts up onto the steep headwall. There is some loose rock at the start of this pitch so be careful!! Several long pulls will lead you to the anchor at a nice little ledge(5.11.d/5.12a). The 5 th pitch continue's up the head wall another fun pitch that's goes around 5.11b. Rap the route with 1x70M.

3 out of 5 stars Not bad

Last pitch is way harder than 11b. More like 11d.

5 out of 5 stars new easy route to the top!!!

Someone put up a new pitch that goes to the top. good news if you can't climb 5.12... To find it look to your right in the middle of the third pitch right before it gets steep. bolts go up the slab to a 2 ring anchor. Can be done in 1 long pitch or 2 with an extra anchor in the middle.(im guessing for safe repel) Id give it around a 9+ rating, really fun slab climbing with a small vertical block to finish it off. Thanks to whoever put these in!!! Now us 5.9-5.10 climbers can get to the top. You rock
