Description:

This route starts about 10 feet right of the Hawk crack. Climb the run out face for 60 feet (5.5) and belay from ledge and small tree below huge left facing corner. P2 (5.7 and "hard to protect") climbs the white face through overhangs just left of the huge left facing corner, then moves right to the corner system. Then climb the corner system and exit right, similar to Hawk but 10 feet higher. Zig-zag around roofs and belay from small ledge. P3 is a short pitch to top out (straight up). DW says climb crack to top, but it's also easy to link up with P3 of Hawk.

Descent Options:

Walk off or Madame G's rap

3 out of 5 stars Scary as hell

Sketchiest 5.7 of my life. Crux on P2 is about 8 feet above a micro-cam. Full extension gaston with a hand-foot match. I'll never do this route again.

Pulling the roofs was pretty cool though.

Oh, and wicked bad rope drag, but I ran out of long slings. Bought more at Rock and Snow 4 hours later.

3 out of 5 stars Scary in spots

Moving out around the corner on P2 isn't the hardest part - the next move is pretty scary. Jay lead pitches 1 and 2, I led P3. P3 is pretty steep, but juggy for the most part.

Good route with moves that aren't immediately obvious.

3 out of 5 stars Good route

The last pitch, a 5.3, I think, is a wonderful short lead that's dead vertical to overhanging. Amazing that this can really be 5.3, but it is! Pitch 2 was good fun at 5.7, just be very careful about rope drag, it's much more meandering than it appears from the guidebook.
