Description:

An absolute neglected classic- one of the best routes in Red Rock. Every pitch has something unique to offer. Start about 300' right of Our Father, deep in the gully somewhat before a steep section. On the left hand side, about 10' up is a bolt in a dihedral. This is your route. P1: Climb the dihedral to the top, then step left around the arete to a belay. 50', 5.10 P2: Climb up and right, following bolts through a roof, then up the dihedral to the base of an obvious ramp and belay. 60', 5.11a P3: Climb the ramp to belay. 60', 5.10 P4: Follow the bolts out right, then up the slab to a ledge. 50', 5.11 P5: Head left toward the corner above, then up the corner to a large, sloping ledge. Climb up some loose blocks on the backside of the ledge to the summit. 140', 5.7

Descent Options:

From the top, head down and right (skier's right), making one fourth class step onto a ledge below when possible. Follow this ledge to its end, then down to the trees below. One rappel (70'). Once down, STAY RIGHT, don't drop over the ridge visible from t

5 out of 5 stars One of the really nice ones

Four Pitches of nice anxiety free climbing. There is no anchor after the crux. The way off is fairly easy to find. Go up and then tend right accross some exposed slabs. A bit of fifth class down climbing to a rappel tree. Then 4th class downclimbing. Trend right.

Incredible. Steep. Technical. Varnished. A committing and compelling route that should not be missed. Pm of you want details/beta.
