Description:

p. 1 At the base of the low angled buttress is a 6 foot high ledge with a bolt above it. Make the mantle (5.7), clip the bolt, and make a move up and left. Wander up the slabs to a belay at an old piton (thread and tricam nearby) where the angle increases. p. 2 Wander your way up the steeper wall, weaving left and right across the blunt nose. Aim for the beautiful white flake on the left side of the prow to finish. When in doubt, usually go right. There's some committing moves above your gear, harder if short.

Descent Options:

1 double rope rap.

4 out of 5 stars heady lead!

heady move up past the first bolt to gain the clipping stance for the second. Crux moves are well above your last piece and it's much easier for someone over 6' tall to make that long move out to the left. All in all, it's a great route with excellent rock and good exposure, sure to keep the blood pumping and mind focused!

4 out of 5 stars Surpisingly classic

The flake at the top of the second pitch makes this climb a jem!

3 out of 5 stars Tough moves

My feet were swollen from Slabbing earlier that day. Great move over the slap by the tree, I dynoed it, made the slap skill a little less strenuous.

4 out of 5 stars Short Order

Felt like a real adventure with no beta, summer cragging shorts, and a high wind. Worked me more than Seventh Seal.
