Description:

An excellent old school 5.6, 2 pitch climb that runs up the center of the Riding Hood Wall. Pitch 1: Start at a black, left-facing corner about 10 feet to the left of the large ceiling in the center of the wall. Climb up this crack, which goes up and slightly right. Follow this to a 2 bolt belay on a small ledge. The bolts are on your right (5.6, 130 feet) Pitch 2: Step right into the obvious crack that heads straight up. Head up this to the top. 5.6, 50m.

Descent Options:

Head up and right. To avoid scrambling over some very large, loose choss, it is possible to do one short rap off the right side of the crag and then proceed on down the gully. Some easy downclimbing and walking gets you back to your packs in about 10 mi

5 out of 5 stars oh this was a little sweet climb!

Jean led, John and I followed, I think I went second and cleaned. Started to rain when we were at the first belay so we had to rap off. Must come back and finish this one!
