Description:

Pitch stems the prominent right-facing dihedral. Bring a large cam or two to set up a belay stance at the top of the dihedral or wander right for 8' to Unknown 9+'s anchors. Pitch 2 continues up and left around the roof on easier slab to the base of South Face Direct's 4th Pitch. The small roof below the first anchors is the crux.

4 out of 5 stars Two pitches then roped walk to the rap anchor

The 2nd pitch comes to a large ledge, and the rap anchor is way out to the climber's left. The anchor is too far away, that we had to build a belay anchor for P2, and roped-walk to the rap anchor -- effectively making the climb a 3-pitch.

4 out of 5 stars easy fun

First time i went to 11 mile I hadn't lead any trad, and i was scared to do this route. After coming back it was a great route with little to fear, and has some good moves. Particularly liked the short roof at the end.

4 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy

Climbed it with clients. A really fun route, good position and movement. Has chains below the big roof for first pitch anchor.
