Description:

Originally a solo route by Duane Raleigh "Last of the Dead Guys". Probably doesn't follow Duane's line exactly. Bolted with permission ground up by Tony Wilson and Marion Hutchison. Nice face climbing. Its about 120 feet to the chains so you need two ropes or one 70 meter rope to rap from the anchors. There is a seldom done second pitch. Head right and up and over an overhang to the top on trad gear.

5 out of 5 stars Great Climb!

High first bolt. 30 ft to anchors from last bolt. It is a very thrilling climb.
