Description:

Hike/scramble to a belay ledge which consists of a single bolt (you can get in some smaller cams down and left of the bolt for additional protection for belayer) A fun route with good position on the Third Horseman, which is adjacent to the tallest tower just to a climber's right. Starting with a step off of the belay ledge onto the face it meanders up good rock with consistent and fun 5.10+ climbing. The bolts are spaced pretty well, which makes for some spicy moves once you start moving around the aretes.

Descent Options:

lower to belay ledge and hike off

4 out of 5 stars headless

Wow, bit of a mental challenge on this one for me today. Haven't been on anything new in a while and this was a sustained challenge. Felt REALLY weird clipping bolts on the face and climbing around the arete. maybe i didn't do it right but i sure didn't see any holds on the face!

4 out of 5 stars excellent

great climb for the end of the day. Long sustained 10d climbing. 70 meter rope for sure. Big maybe on the 60 meter

5 out of 5 stars Headless Horseman

Nice long climb with a bit of everything. Extending your draw on the last bolt before you start moving right (3rd maybe) could help cut down on some rope drag.
