Description:

THE classic trad line in the state. P1) Climb to a bolt, then continue up the corner to a bolted belay (10a). P2) Face climb up on flakes to gain a nice corner (10a). P1 and P2 can be combined with a 60m rope. P3) The crux. Climb up and pull a wild mantle, then gain the splitter hand crack. Follow the crack to a crux slot/grovel/roof move. Classic pitch! P4) Traverse left then climb a wandering face to a convenient belay (5.9). P5) Continue to the top after tricky route finding off the belay. Edit: Rather then head up the easy fifth class choss gulley to the right, go straight up the face and follow a nice finger crack with good feet to the top (5.10-). This makes for a much better finish.

5 out of 5 stars Great route

Got guided up this one since I was on vacation my normal partners where not available. You really need to get the beta from the locals before doing the approach on this one. Not sure I could find it again even after having done it once already.
