Description:

An easier approach pitch leads to a short crux pitch. It is also possible to approach from the first pitch of The Nose.. Pitch 1, 5.7: Start at the vertical crack 25 feet right of The Nose. Climb this until you reach a the lower angle portion, then begin angling left aiming for the bottom of a dihedral left of a bush. (Climb into the dihedral to the left of the bush; it is tempting to try to traverse into its top. Don't do this.) Continue up dihedral and traverse left to a belay on the arete. Pitch 2, 5.9-: go back right and pull the roof at two parallel, thin roof cracks and up easier rock to belay/rap station. A single-rope rappel gets back to the ground.

4 out of 5 stars Did p2 this time

Actually we did it in one pitch, through the 5.9 roof. A ton of fun, there are two pins through the roof. Very interesting moves up to the roof.

3 out of 5 stars Very soft for a 7 (p1)

Other than the semi cruxy start, this is very enjoyable (soft) climb. Gear is great throughout. I think this would make a nice climb for someone breaking into the 7's.

3 out of 5 stars Just ok.

The roof on the second pitch makes it worth doing but the good climbing is too short. Tiff led the first pitch.

3 out of 5 stars Fillipina

A very good route but finding where the first pitch goes is difficult. Double finger size small cams are useful for making a bely and protecting the second pitch. The Fillipina/Boldville link up takes a more direct line and is also worthwhile.
