Description:

Amazing climb on the west side of the valley approx 4-5 miles south of Purgatory. Fairly obvious. The approach is through private land but apparently the landowners have given climbers permission to cross there. Please be respectful. There is usually a path packed down. The climb can be a thin column in some years but in other years (like 04/05) it forms as a huge sheet. Steep climbing.

4 out of 5 stars Seven Year Itch

In HUGE this year. 1st pitch was steep and really abused from numerous ascents. 2nd pitch had 3 options, we chose the far left as it looked best. Middle line was really drippy and chandilier looking.

Classic route. Some years it fat and amazing, others, its thin and scary.
