Route Summary | Ascent Notes (0)
Modern Trad Rack. One 5.7 R move is encountered on this route.
Start: Toward the right end of the slab on the right side of the Isobuttress, the first large cliff one comes to when approaching the Black Arches Wall.
P1 5.10a 70': Climb up slab to the first bolt (in a slight depression with a ovular "rim"), then up and left to a second bolt. Climb through overhang (3rd bolt) to vertical crack and up this to a ledge. Step left and climb the steep face (5.7 R), reaching for and following a thin crack, climbing to fixed anchor.
P2 5.4 60': (Join E-Stim): Climb up to a left-rising crack/flake, step up this and then up the face above, reaching a horizontal crack. Follow this left to the outside, rounded corner. Make a couple friction moves to easier ground, climbing through a steep face to anchors just below a good ledge.
P3: 5.6 10': Ignore this and use the anchors to rappel (2 req'd), unless you want to head for the Diagonal Ramp Wall, in which case you can climb the last short face then walk off left.
Rappel from fixed anchors at the top of P1, rappel from anchors at the top of P2 (two rappels required), or climb to the top and walk left to the Diagonal Ramp.
