Description:

Start just to the left of the approach trail. face moves lead up to a bulgy roof(5.10c), just above the roof is an anchor..skip this and continue up to the left(following the bolts-duh!). The original route then went out left up the right side of another bulge, the rock isn't great and the moves are so-so. Instead head back right across a ledge and follow the bolts up a bulgy shallow corner(5.11a). Belay at the base of the large broken section of cliff. The next pitch sucks, it's 5.5 loose and mossy. Find the path of least resistance(there's one protectoin botl along the way) and belay at the base of the obvious head wall. Start the next pitch by travsering off to the right then you will trend back left. This pitch is rated 5.11c and ascend's a slightly less than vertical face. Belay at the good ledge a top this pitch. The final pitch is alittle funky! Start by traversing right significantly. Then follow the bolts op the steep, bulgy, "gold shield" head wall (5.12a) To descend rap the route. If you use the correct anchors it's possible to rap the route with 1 60M rope. Other wise 2 ropes will get you down without much effort.

5 out of 5 stars fantastic!

we only climbed the first pitch, but it was tremendous. terrific moves on great jugs, and then pull the roof on even larger jugs. doesn't get a whole lot more fun than this.

I've freed this route, but I usually just use it for solo pratice. A great route to get better at the aid/free transition.
