Description:

An excellent 4-pitch line, wandering up the face, is a good test of one's friction ability and calf strength. Pitch 1 climbs a slab (spot of 5.9) past 3 bolts, somewhat run-out up high, to a bolted belay. Pitch 2 frictions up and right past 6 bolts (5.9 and 5.7) to a 3-bolt belay right of the prominent arch where you can rap or continue up. Pitch 3 moves up right (5.7) past more bolts to another 3-bolt station. Pitch 4 is the best lead and stretches up the long line of bolts above. Smear straight up on sustained but well-protected 5.9 and 5.10 friction to a 3-bolt belay below some blocky roofs. Rap from here with double ropes to the belay station at the top of P3. 1 more 200' rap to easy 4th class downclimb of 25' .

The last pitch variation (bolts to nowhere?) is definitely the best part of this climb. Well protected but hard ( my calves were on fire), it's a welcome change from the runouts below.

Several trips to this quality route. Bring lots of draws for the final pitch which has about 15 bolts.
