Description:

~100' left of the OR under a small roof ~40' up with low bolt. Crux pitch is very runout and scary after bolt ladder, although if you pulled the crux you should be able to do the runout.

4 out of 5 stars Traditions

Pitch 1 is a rope stretcher and a little runout in sections, but all the hard moves have protection. Pitch 2 is sweeeeet, but too short. Belay is also confusing after pitch 2. I just stop at the ledge with a bolt where you traverse right for pitch three and throw in two cams. Pitch three and four are uneventful. Crux pitch 5 is way overbolted, but fun and quite a thinker to decipher the crux moves. The traverse after pitch 5 is a pain when combining it with pitch 6, but that is the only logical way to climb it in my opinion. I am going to try the direct finish off pitch 5 next time as recommended in an earlier post.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful Wall.... and route.

Was a super cold day on the shady hike in... surprisingly the wall was shirts off and the climbing was great.... sporty texture and great holds. Unusual bolting... 1st pitch run out and after that pretty much over bolted. The crux was hard but good rests before and after. Good times... skipped bolts on the upper parts on accident. Good times

5 out of 5 stars Good but certainly dangerous

Done in six pitches; 70m rope recommended... Definitely take the direct line after the crux pitch all the way to the tree ledge.

I aided one move on the crux pitch. Several hard areas here.
I found the first pitch scary--5.8X. After that, a bit runout after the crux, but not bad.
