Description:

Start on the large block area up and 20' right of Washboard. Head up any number of ways toward the obvious tree (not Pine) about 100' up. 2nd pitch continues 140' to the top of the crag. This area is also known as Egg Wall and is concidered by some guide books as a 3rd/4th class down climb.

Descent Options:

Rap off slung chockstone to the right of the tree at the top of the 1st pitch (60m will reach if you throw the rope climbers right a little of where you just climbed.) or continue to top. From the top you can take the trail right to the top of Sentinel Bu

3 out of 5 stars Saved the day

Went up to help a party with ropes stuck. It's a good intro trad lead, but sling gear long and use double ropes if sewing it up

3 out of 5 stars Hopscotch was my least favorite game at recess.

There was no cool equipment and it is damaging to joints.

3 out of 5 stars Wet Jugs

Climbed it in a downpour. Was a good route to be on to climb in the rain for the first time. The rain didn't really make a difference. Easy route.

3 out of 5 stars First Trad Lead

After climbing this route in the rain the day before, I decided that it would be a great opportunity to get my first experience leading trad while it was dry. It was a great opportunity to see how my gear placements were while on the sharp end (instead of safely on the ground).
