Description:

about 30 yds left of blonde ambition... Pull a small roof then up to slab with a pine tree. Then pull a blocky roof to set up an anchor for the second pitch. Move left about 10 feet and follow crack up. Rap off of a tree to the right requires a 60M rope or two 50m just be sure the 60M rope is even as it barely made the ground.

5 out of 5 stars Nice and long

Good climbing the entire way. A 60m will get you down, but you have to jump the last 3' unless you are very heavy. Can be done in one pitch if you sling the stuff in the short right facing dihedral long.

4 out of 5 stars Big holds = Big fun

Really big holds on this route with a fair amount of overhanging terrain. The crux is the right facing dihedral that is described in the guidebook to be on pitch 1.

Kevin was eager for me to go at the blocky roof!! It was spicy. The second pitch has the crux, very nice moves..
