Description:

Start in the Chimney work your up way up past this section, then transfer out onto the ledge system. Once you pass the ledges, you will be left to a large runout of simple slab. Be sure you are ready to commit to the slab. As you climb the top rope drag becomes a problem as well as communication. Recommend radios if you have em. ***Didn't find any information on this route in the guidebook or online, so if anyone knows the name of the route, or the FA just contact me to update it.***

Descent Options:

Find a walk off, or use the bolts on the Wick.

5 out of 5 stars Second lead and LOVED it!

Protected the start by placing my #5 big bro above and past the chimney section (had to practice with my new piece). Then up further with a #6 Cam. Near the top of the ledge I used a nut. Then Climbed the committing runout slab, then placed two cams and used three rocks for the top rop setup for the others to enjoy this route. I will admit this was my first encounter with slab runout, and I was a bit on edge, since I am weak on slab. But I pulled through and beat the mental challenge.
