Description:

About 200 feet right of a dirty corner system (Broken Hammer) is a rightward arching corner. Climb this to it's end, then up the face to a ledge. Then trend left across the face above to a right facing corner, go around to the left and up to the ledges and a bushwhack to the top.

Descent Options:

One 60m. rope makes it to the ground. Use of stopper knots is highly recommended.

3 out of 5 stars don't get sucked into the corner!

I was jammed in there and had a hard time placing gear and getting out. There is a much easier way to move though the arching corner. Thin/slabby feet on the traverse. Lot's of fun.

3 out of 5 stars I can't believe this was my first 8 on lead

I just followed it and it felt really hard. Good gear throughout.

4 out of 5 stars both pitches great

Followed Alex up the 5.8 pitch with all kinds of interesting and fun moves, and I led the fun, airy and exciting 5.6 2nd pitch.

3 out of 5 stars Boldville

either this is difficult for the grade or the heat was a major factor. I don't remember this climb being so tough. would say it's more like 5.8+ Got up okay but it was tough. also was close to 100 degrees. followed james

4 out of 5 stars be sure to do second pitch

the second 5.6+ pitch has a great rail out of spectacularly overhanging portion of the cliff. Don't miss it.
