Description:

This enjoyable climb starts in a rhododendron nook about 20' left of Lichen Worms. Climb the low angle slab to the moss ledge under the left-facing mini-dihedral. If you want, plug a .5-1" cam in the dihedral on the way to the high first bolt, then solve some trickiness to gain the fun slab above. The high-step crux comes near the top, going directly through a distinctly rippled and ridged horizontal band--many skirt this worthwhile move via an easier 5.9 passage to the right.

3 out of 5 stars Awesome route

Really love this route. Feel like there's a 9ish section down low between the first two bolts and definitely 9+ on the left side finish at the top

3 out of 5 stars Sweet 9

Had been told it was a 9+. Not sure if it was or not but did enjoy this onsight. Trickiest section was between first two bolts for me.
